It was just a matter of time before someone filed a lawsuit over this stuff. Does anyone know why it is so important to have kids "12 and up" on Snapchat in the first place?

Specifically, the legal action takes issue with Snapchat Discover, by which users come across content from "media partners" including Buzzfeed, Vice and MTV. According to the complaint, Snapchat helps curate the content and "exercises direct control over its editorial content and what is published to the consumer." The lawsuit adds that Snapchat's "terms of service" lack warnings about offensive content on Snapchat Discover.
