1:45 PM PT -- A rep for Snapchat tells us, "We are sorry if people were offended," adding, "Our Discover partners have editorial independence, which is something that we support."
A bunch of kids are suing Snapchat for allegedly corrupting them with sexually explicit content.
Famed attorney Mark Geragos has just filed a lawsuit against the social media giant, claiming its new feature, Snapchat Discover -- which curates posts from various media outlets -- has become a haven for raunchy topics.
Geragos gives examples:
-- 10 Things He Thinks When He Can't Make You Orgasm
-- I Got High, Blown, and Robbed When I Was a Pizza Delivery Guy
-- 23 Pictures That Are Too Real If You've Ever Had Sex with a Penis (the Buzzfeed post features Disney characters with pornographic captions)
-- What It Is Really Like to Let People Finger You in Public
The class action suit, on behalf of the minors, seeks a $50k penalty for each violation of the Communications Decency Act, and an order forcing Snapchat to warn parents and minors of graphic content.
