Remember an incident from 2009 where Chris Brown beat up Rihanna? Well, some ‘geniuses’ at Snapchat somehow thought that using it in their advertising was a good idea.
The ad in question was for the mobile game “Would You Rather?,” and it presented users with two options: “Slap Rihanna” or “Punch Chris Brown.”
Rihanna was understandably pissed off saying, “Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!” the singer wrote. “I’d love to call it ignorance but I know you ain’t that dumb. You spent money to animate something that would
intentionally bring shame to DV Victims and made a joke of it.” She later added, “Shame on you!Throw the whole app-oligy away.”
Her remark sent Snap (SNAP)’s stock down nearly 4%, erasing nearly $800 million (Sh80 billion) from its market value as loyal fans deleted the app.
