The filter quickly caused outrage among the crowd.

The Australian war memorial director, Dr. Brendan Nelson, said the app had missed the importance of the day.

& # 39; It is an inappropriate use of the Australian War Memorial to relate it to something that would be described as happy and my strong preference would be for the image to be removed & he said to Daily Telegraph.

& # 39; Anzac Day is a solemn and respectful day of commemoration and commemoration of those who fought and died for our liberties. & # 39;

Veteran David Sieber called the filter disrespectful and an insult to the men and women who had sacrificed their lives for the country.

& # 39; You say & # 39; Happy Easter & # 39; and Christmas, but this is a solemn day and it's not appropriate. & # 39;

Angry Snapchat users went to Twitter to vent their frustration about the filter of the platform.

& # 39; WTF is this? & # 39; Happy & # 39; ANZAC Day? Get in the bin @Snapchat Your filter is stupid, & a person posted.

Another person tweeted: & # 39; I think it's really disrespectful that you've created a filter for Anzac Day that says & # 39; happy Anzac Day & # 39 ;, there is nothing happy about commemorating the lives of people who died while fighting for Australia. & # 39;

Snapchat responded quickly to the disapproving tweets and responded to each post: & # 39; Thank you for warning us – we'll investigate. & # 39;

The video sharing app has finally removed the filter.

Daily Mail Australia reached to Snapchat for comment.
