The popular video sharing app Snapchat is under fire after an advertisement deemed insensitive to domestic violence victims appeared on it's platform. Singer Rihanna publicly called out Snapchat because the ad actually involved she and former lover singer Chris Brown. The ad asked users if they would "rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown." It's no secret that the two singers had a very public breakup after Chris Brown was charged with assault on Rihanna in 2009. In a statement released by Rihanna, she feels Snapchat made light of domestic violence and shamed the company. After Rihanna's remarks, Snapchat almost lost $1 billion in value last week, according to CNN. The company's CEO Evan Spiegel’s personal net worth dropped $150 million due to the controversy, according to Forbes.
