Snapchat has recently issued an apology for a tasteless ad involving Rihanna. The social media app put up an advertisement for domestic violence that featured Chris Brown and Rihanna. The ad asked users ‘would you rather slap Rihanna, or punch Chris Brown?’ Not sure what was the purpose of ad, but Rihanna responded to it.
Snapchat responded with an apology: “This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service. We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again.”
Despite their apology, Snapchat left the ad up for a few days before taking it down last Monday. To read more this click here.
