Why You're Suddenly Seeing So Many Anime-Like Selfies On Social Media

Woman using her phone
Have you suddenly noticed tons of anime-like photos in your social media feeds? The culprit is the Meitu app.

It's several years old, but has exploded in popularity here in the United States in the last few days. In the Apple App Store it was the 27th most popular free app as of Thursday afternoon. That may seem low until you realize it was 973rd overall on Saturday.

Officially it is a "one touch photoshop for enhancing your beauty and putting the finishing touches on your photos." But it also allows you to turn your photos into artwork. A couple examples are below and many more can be found by searching #meitu.

PETA Calls For Boycott After What Happened To Dog Actor

Josh Gad
The movie "A Dog's Purpose" was recently filming a scene where a German Shepard swims across a dangerous river. In real life, it was a pool with churning rapids, but TMZ got the video where you see the handler struggling with the dog to get him in the water. "He wants to get away, just throw him in," a voice off-camera says in the video.

PETA has called for a boycott of the movie. The pup was one of five German Shepherds used in the film production.


Actor Josh Gad, who provided the dog's voice, said the movie is "one of the most beautiful love letters to animals I have ever seen," but he found the video disturbing and he has asked the studio for an explanation.

Steve Carell
Steve Carrell totally trolled fans of The Office (myself included): Then six minutes later... Then followed that by saying... Love it! It would be cool to see where all our shows are 10 years later, but obviously it takes a lot of money, time, and organization to make that kind of thing happen.
