    Speaking to TechCrunch, a spokesperson for GIPHY said: “A user discovered an offensive GIF sticker in our library, and we immediately removed it per our content guidelines.

    "After investigation of

    the incident, this sticker was available due to a bug in our content moderation filters specifically affecting GIF stickers.

    “We have fixed the bug and have re-moderated all of the GIF stickers in our library.

    “The GIPHY staff is also further reviewing every GIF sticker by hand and should be finished shortly.

    "We take full responsibility for these recent events and sincerely apologise to anyone who was offended.”

    The slip-up is embracing for Instagram’s parent company, Facebook.

    The Californian social network recently launched a Facebook Messenger Kids app, targeted at young children.

    The messaging platform also includes GIPHY support, although it is only supposed to show G-rated imagery.
