Snapchat, an app that allows instant communication through photos and videos on your mobile phone, may have been dealt a mortal blow by Rihanna. The company mocked her and the physically abusive incident she experienced from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009. Snapchat posted an ad for a mobile game asking users, “Would you rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown?”
The company later tried to apologize but Rihanna wasn’t having it.
She said, ““SNAPCHAT I know you know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess? You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away.”
She then encouraged her fans to delete the app and many have. Shares of Snap, Inc (Snap.N) immediately went down 4.5%. Snapchat had recently lost over $1.5 Billion in market value after criticism from Kylie Jenner and Rihanna may have just inflicted a fatal blow.
