A new filter on Instagram is going viral for letting users see which Disney character they are.
Created by Instagram user Arno Partissimo, the filter is producing a wide range of reactions from Disney fans online.
The filter works by simply scanning a user’s face before landing on a random Disney character. And while some of the filter’s decisions seem to make sense, others have left users scratching their heads.
Videos of people reacting to their designated Disney characters are making the rounds on social media sites, like Twitter.
A clearly shook Williams posted the video to Twitter with the caption, “Y’all…”
Y’all... pic.twitter.com/Q2xAR17zV7— Zelda Williams (@zeldawilliams) December 30, 2019
Other users were generally happy when matched with lovable characters like The Lion King‘s Simba.

But others were less than thrilled and even low key offended when compared to characters like The Lion King’s Pumbaa and the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Some half-jokingly accused the filter of being racist for repeatedly matching them up with Chinese character Mulan.
“Y’all got me so fucked up,” one user wrote.
