This ‘SURVEY’ of sorts popped up on Snapchat recently much to the dismay of Rihanna and her LEGION of fans.
The 30-year-old singer has responded to the social media app’s apology for running an ad for a game called “Would You Rather?,” which asked users if they would rather slap Rihanna or punch her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown. In 2009, Brown was arrested for domestic violence and subsequently charged with felony assault for attacking Rihanna. He pleaded guilty and completed the court-mandated community service.
Rihanna slammed Snapchat through an Instagram Stories post on Thursday, and criticized the app for bringing “shame” to domestic violence victims.
In their apology on Tuesday, Snapchat said the ad was pulled last weekend.
“The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines,” the company said in a statement to the BBC. “We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.”
SOOOOOO Rihanna wants you guys to delete the app…are you gonna?
Rihanna said we should delete our snapchat for their domestic abuse joke. Our president has spoken therefore i’m deleting snapchat. pic.twitter.com/nLvB2okCRa
