Snapchat Apologizes for Ad Featuring Rihanna & Chris Brown

Snapchat Apologizes for Ad Featuring Rihanna & Chris Brown

UPDATE: Rihanna has responded to the ad and is slamming Snapchat.

Snapchat featured an advertisement that left many fans very upset.

The ad in question asked users if they would “rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.” You can see the ad here, which was screencapped by a user who 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?”

Snapchat has since responded and told the BBC, “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.”
