A creepy new app is gaining in popularity on social media. The app allows users to superimpose a star's face on a porn actor's body. The technology has privacy implications for consumers everywhere.

The app was first introduced in December 2017, and soon porn videos popped up on websites featuring celebrity faces on porn actor's bodies.

Celebrities have been secretly battling porn websites to remove the videos that appears to show them engaging in sex acts in shocking hi-def detail.

According to Newsweek.com, the technology can be traced back to Reddit.com subgroup "deepfakes" and involves a machine learning algorithm that swaps celebrity faces onto porn actresses bodies in adult films.

Until now, the tools used to make the videos were proprietary and reserved for Reddit’s deepfakes subgroup users. But now the tools are available online and social media users are using the app to superimpose star's faces and create their own porn videos.

One video making the rounds shows boxer Mike Tyson and rapper Snoop Dogg's faces superimposed on the bodies of Oprah Winfrey and her bestie Gayle King. The video is taken from an old episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Computer scientists warn that the technology will one day be used to fake videos of famous figures or anyone else for extortion purposes.

"The technology could advance beyond pornography and one day be used to to make famous figures appear to say and do things that they really haven't," NY Magazine reported last year.

A user in the Reddit subgroup defends the new technology.

"The work that we create here in this community is not with malicious intent. Quite the opposite," wrote Reddit user Gravity_Horse on the deepfakes Reddit page. "We are painting with revolutionary, experimental technology, one that could quite possibly shape the future of media and creative design."

    Damn that's crazy !!!!

  • DroneRivers

    Snoop posted this on his IG yesterday and I got the worst cramp in my side laughing at that mess. Who even thinks of this craziness?

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Foolishness LOL

  • Calikush

    ????I’m still in stitches over Tyson Winfrey and Snoop King! This is too much my stomach is in knots! Lmao..........but on a serious note, this new technology chit is scary as a mugg!

  • Russiancreme

    Same here. When the dog pound pic popped up ?????

  • Yoni7

    Ooohh this facial recognition for the Feds (and aliens - let's argue) is making the rounds. Folks KEEP falling for it. Everything that these folks are doing/coming up with on social media is DELIBERATE! It's not for OUR fun, games, entertainment and enjoyment. It's for a new world order. I have never once used one of those filters/apps or nothing....not for nothing more than the fact that I haven't taken the time to "play" with it. Are folks STILL finding Pokémon's? Crushing on Candy and building their Farmvilles?

  • Yoni7

    I JUST made mention of it. You should be scared. REAL scared.

  • starryeyed

    of course you left out the good part... what is the app?! I dont feel like researching it's friday!

  • MJF

  • Renee26

  • Thee Lovelii Ladii Jaye ?

    Technology is a MF..LMAO! I live for it! That video is hilarious.

  • Russiancreme

    Yep all these apps are just a back door way to get into people's phone for private info. I was watching the news and ppl are surprised Alexa is recording ALL the time, not just when you ask a question. I knew the fix was in a few years ago when I was having a convo and mentioned rose gold, then all the ads on my phone's browser was for MK rose gold watches.

  • Calikush

    Yes, I just saw what u posted up thread! I most definitely believe it! That chit is scary as hell! ?????

  • Yoni7

    The SMART TV BEEN recording and I've made mention of it a long time ago. Why when you turn it off, a red light comes on. Sometimes I wave to my TV when it's off! They gone get tired of my boring ass. Alexa's is one hoe that I will NOT allow into my home. I just want to know is there a staff/team monitoring all of us and if they're hiring at the moment.

  • xenaD

    First of all that’s hilarious!

  • NewNew

    The slipperiest of slopes

  • Russiancreme

    Waving to the TV sound like me.... years ago I was on the home phone (landline) and for a few sec my neighbors convo somehow got spliced into my call. It was like an overlay of her phone call. Ever since I always joke the FBI tapped my cell n my phone n the basement. I want to be on that staff too ?

    the FBI tapped my cell n my phone n the basement.

    Scary cus they already think we all look alike. Now they can just create fake imagery. We actually wont be able to believe our own two eyes.

  • Raquel

    Hell yea. I always said that technology is good to a point, after that, it gets sinister and those who have control over it use it for that reason.

    If you see me with a mask on, you'll know why. lol I laugh, but I'm serious asf.

  • Brown & Proud

    Yep, everything "smart" is used as a spyware for the gov't. . Xbox, ps4, Wii, tv's, cell phones, computers with cameras, google home, Alexa, nest, ring, etc. The list in endless. They are in EVERYONES house at this point unless your Amish. This new 5g ish is extremely sinister. People dont even realize the NWO is closing in on us as we type. Knock, knock, knockin at our doors.

  • ??Dotty??

    I say this all the time, we have all this technology and knowledge and all we do is find the creativeness to create more IG Filters and snapchat cat years, meanwhile, we still have cancers, hiv, people with diabetes, people who need replacement organs and we aren't working with stem cells and genes. All our energies are placed in the wrong direction entirely.

  • Yoni7

    I'm telling you, I wave at that hoe constantly.......ESPECIALLY when I can see my reflection real good.
