Rihanna Ruthlessly Dragged Snapchat For Its Domestic Abuse Ad Featuring Her And Chris Brown

Somebody's getting fired for sure.

Published March 15, 2018

Social media app Snapchat snapped its way to megastar songstress Rihanna’s bad side this week when it featured an appallingly distasteful advert asking users to pick between two options: slap the bad gal or punch Chris Brown.

The “tone deaf” ad, as they named it, took complete disregard to the former couple’s 2009 domestic violence case and pissed off both Team Breezy fans and the Rihanna Navy alike. But despite the folks over at Snapchat snatching the advertisement down and penning a statement admitting the mistake, RiRi says they can take their apology and shove it.

“Now SNPACHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there!” she wrote via her account on one of Snapchat’s competitors, Instagram. “But I’m trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!”

RiRi reminded them that the “mistake” was not only a waste of money, but intentionally harmful to other victims of domestic violence. Though they didn’t particularly hurt the bad gal’s feelings, she added, the social media app did commit a grave disservice and disappointment to domestic violence survivors both past and present.

“This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-ology away.”

Yikes. If Snapchat thought a Kylie Jenner tweet doomed them, they haven’t seen anything yet.
