After boycott the multimedia messaging app Snapchat, the Famous Pop star Rihanna posted an Instagram Story on today 17th march to criticise, after the platform showed an insulting ad featuring the Rihanna to users. The ad was for a smartphone game named Would You Rather that appeared in Snapchat. In the last weekend, the ad was asking users if they would rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown. Many on social media have called out Snapchat for making an advertisement out of a terrible incident. In a live chat on Instagram, Rihanna accused the company of making fun of the victims of domestic violence. He said, ‘The matter is not in my sense … but they have been ridiculed for all women, children and men who are victims of domestic violence, especially those who have not yet been able to overcome it. Snapchat should be ashamed. ‘ After Rihanna’s resentment, the company apologised and removed that game from her app.
Following Rihanna’s appeal, the stock split in Snapchat shares in the stock market and the company suffered a loss of up to 4.7 percent.

We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.
