Rihanna has a few things to say about a controversial ad on Snapchat that referenced the physical abuse she received from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Snapchat’s Offensive Rihanna/Chris Brown Ad Snapchat allowed an offensive ad- by the game app, ‘Would You Rather’- to be featured on it’s ‘discovery’ page. The app’s game is called, “Impossible choices: Slap the female pop star or punch Chris Brown?” and it made light of Brown’s and Rihanna’s infamous fight.
Crazy, right? Who, over at Snapchat, thought it was okay to approve that?!! Snapchat’s 1st Apology For The Ad Anywho, after receiving backlash from fans, Snapchat yanked the ad from it’s platform a few days ago and issued a formal apology:
Via CNN- “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines,” the company said in a statement obtained by CNN. The majority of advertising on Snapchat is purchased through a self-serve advertising platform and subject to review, according to the company.
Rihanna Slams Snapchat:”Throw The Whole App-ology Away” Needless to say, as soon as Rihanna caught wind of Snapchat’s apology, she transformed from Rihanna, into Ri-Ri in 1.2 seconds. She started off her read session with “Now, Snapchat, I know you already know…”. As soon as one starts their sentence like that, you don’t even have to know what they’re about to say next, to know that they’re about to read the hell outta somebody. Thus we have Rihanna’s Instagram reply to Snapchat. In a lengthy statement Rihanna released in her Instagram story on Thursday (3/15/18), she slammed Snapchat in front of her 61 million followers :
