Rihanna responds to Snapchat ad mocking domestic violence incident with Chris Brown

Post by eddie on Wed May 02, 2018 10:13 pm

Rihanna has slammed Snapchat for its latest controversial advertisement which made light of Chris Brown's assault on her.

In the advert, Snapchat asked users to pick if they'd rather "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown," which poked fun at Brown's 2009 felony assault of Rihanna.

Snapchat apologised for the ad on Wednesday saying, "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."

Rihanna responded on Thursday on her Instagram Story saying Snapchat was not her favourite app, and she was trying to figure out "what the point was with this mess."

"You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV [domestic violence] victims and made a joke of it!!!" Rihanna wrote.

She proceeded to defend domestic violence victims excluding herself from the narrative.

"This isn’t about my personal feelings... but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet... You let us down!" she said.
