Snapchat thought they were being funny by posting an ad in the apps discovery section. The ad was a play on the game, “Would You Rather”, asking snappers would they rather “Slap Rihanna” or “Punch Chris Brown.”
Rihanna went on Instagram to share her feelings about the ad, ending the post with “throw the whole app-oligy away”.
Snapchat has apologized, 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. We are sorry that this happened.”
