Parents across America have been having the time of their lives by trying one of the one-off special Halloween filters on their small children and seeing how they react, and it is safe to say the little ones were NOT happy.
Take a look at some of the videos that made it onto social media.

… others didn’t find it funny.
I've been seeing tweets like this all week. Adults – parents – traumatising children with this spider filter, then posting it on the internet for laughs. But it isn't funny. It is sick. It is abuse. https://t.co/dlBMMcMOaR

I don’t have kids so I might be doing the most but… y’all don’t think that putting the spider filter on your baby’s face might be traumatic for them???
