Rihanna Responds to Snapchat's Ad Featuring Her and Chris Brown
Rihanna isn't impressed with Snapchat's apology for a tone-deaf ad featuring her and her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown that went up—and has been taken down—on the platform. The image was a "Would You Rather" quiz, with the options being Slap Rihanna or Punch Chris Brown... Awkward..
No one understands what the objective of the ad really was, whether it was to anger or interest but fans were quick to point out the association between the violence suggested in the ad and the history of Rihanna and Chris Brown's relationship. If you don't recall what happened, Brown assaulted Rihanna when they were dating in 2009. An ordeal the singer spoke about to Diane Sawyer on 20/20 later that year.
Following the uproar of the Snapchat ad, Rihanna addressed the app directly on her Instagram story:
Snapchat told BBC Tuesday that the ad was published "in error" and had been removed. However the damage had already been done..
Seems like Snapchat isn't having a good run recently, firstly with the Kylie Jenner situation and now this.
