This is the hilarious moment a toddler said "s***" - when she saw her own face on a scary Snapchat filter

This is the hilarious moment a toddler said "s***" - when she saw her own face on a scary Snapchat filter.

Little Myla was playing on her mum's phone when she was given a fright - causing her to swear.

A Halloween filter on social media app Snapchat caused the 18-month-old's face to change.

And, taken aback, Myla says, "Oh s***" - although mum Mara McCarthy, 35, said she is unsure where she heard the word.

She thinks the tot may have learnt it from her sisters, or via videos on TikTok, which are played aloud in their home in Shrewsbury, Shrops.

Mara said: "I was really shocked. Maggie [another daughter] said the video was hilarious - but I wasn't expecting that.

"I couldn't stop laughing though. There was no denying what Myla said. It was clear as day.

"You don't expect to see a zombie looking back at you with your own face. So it was a perfectly fair response.

"I'm cautious about swearing. I don't do it around the girls, mostly because I don't want them to embarrass me in Tesco.

"I've always been quite careful about the words we use, but it gets harder as they get older and hear it from their friendship groups and social media."

Mara, a hairdresser on a maternity break, said Maggie ran in to show her the video as she made dinner for the family.

She had been videoing her little sister's response to different filters when they came upon the zombie one.

"Maggie was just trying to take some nice videos of Myla. She thought it was hysterical," said Mara.

"I've asked the older girls not to acknowledge the word if she says it again, but it is very hard to keep a straight face."
