Could Faceswapping with a celeb on Snapchat soon be illegal?

Oh hell no

For anyone who's main hobby in life is to perform a wide variety of faceswaps with random celebrities, you might want to start thinking twice about what information you're putting out online.

Why? Because a comedian named Tammay Bhat has landed himself in hot water after parodying the singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar in a story that he then uploaded to his Facebook page.

The video, which involves the comedian using the faceswap feature to share impressions of Leta and Sachin, has actually caused a load of controversy and is even being investigated by the police. The Indian Assistant Commissioner of Police went as far to say that his department is "in touch with Google, Facebook and YouTube to block #Tanmay Bhat's video and also find out [the] IP address".

So, although the comedian hasn't actually been charged with a crime, the ongoing investigation is a pretty strong reminder to always be aware of what you're uploading.

Eek.
