Chrissy Teigen Has Announced She’s Stopped Using Snapchat After Rihanna Scandal
Another one bites the dust.
It’s a pretty bad time to be hanging out at Snapchat HQ because Chrissy Teigen has just announced that she’s done with the social-media app.
The 32-year-old has outlined her reasons behind ditching the platform – namechecking that recent scandal with Rihanna as being the final straw in her decision to quit the app forever.
Let's get checking out a bunch of times Chrissy Teigen proved she was the Queen of social-media...
For anyone who needs a refresher, Ri-Ri put the company on blast after an ad popped up on the platform encouraging users to vote whether they would rather “slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.”
The singer said this was offensive to survivors of domestic abuse, and claimed that the company as a whole had let down 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.”
At the time, Snap distanced themselves from the advert and admitted that the poll should never have gone public: “We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again."
But this hasn't made the cut for Chrissy Teigen, who wrote: “I stopped using snap. The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll...no bueno (sic)"
The company recently had a major wobble when Kylie Jenner announced that she wasn’t a fan of their latest update, with her post about “not opening Snapchat anymore” losing the app $1.3 billion in its stock market value.
