It has been some years now since we heard about the domestic violent situation between Chris Brown and Rihanna. But apparently, Snapchat wanted to relive the moment with an insensitive post. Snapchat promoted an advertisement for a game that suggested violence against Rihanna while connecting it to Chris Brown. Snapchat pulled the ad and according to BBC, the company said "The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware." And all though they have since deleted the post, but Rihanna wasn't having it. Hip Hop Wired said Rihanna left a little post about them on social media, saying "Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! You spent money to animate something that would bring intentional shame to victims and made a joke of it!!! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away,” Rihanna wrote.
Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG— Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018
