Snapchat, what in the world were you thinking?
On Thursday, pop superstar Rihanna responded to a horribly offensive Snapchat ad asking whether you would rather “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.”
“I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!” Rihanna said on Snapchat. “I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!”
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade and don’t understand why this is particularly heinous, it’s because of the people involved: Chris Brown became public enemy number one in 2009 when it was revealed that he brutally beat Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time.
“You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV [domestic violence] victims and made a joke of it!” Rihanna continued. “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!”
“Shame on you,” she fumed. “Throw the whole app-oligy away.”
Snapchat has not yet responded.
