Rihanna vs. Snapchat

Back in 2009, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna during an argument. This news was all over the Internet. Everybody was shocked to hear this news because people thought of them as the perfect couple. This incident made Chris Brown lose many of his fans because they didn’t tolerate domestic violence. According to CNN Judge Patricia Schnegg: “I want Mr. Brown treated as any other defendant who comes to this court.” At the time, Chris Brown was 19 years old. He felt like abuse was a way to express his feelings, because that’s how Brown was raised. Allegedly, his stepfather used to beat his mother and it influenced him. What he did was not okay, but he thought it was. Obviously, he was wrong.

Rihanna is criticizing Snapchat for advertising domestic abuse. The ad is mocking her domestic violence incident with former boyfriend, Chris Brown. The ad for the app called “Would you Rather?” featured photos of the two singers and asked the app users if they would rather “slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.”

The, “Would Rather” ad was removed sometime last week, and Snapchat released an apology on The Verge: “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines.”

Rihanna won’t accept Snapchat’s apology and said they did it intentionally. Rihanna went to Instagram to let her fans know how she felt about the whole ordea,l and she said, “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 domestic violence in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us down!” Snapchat responded to Rihanna’s post and said that it was a disgusting thing and it would never happen again.
