Brown and Rihanna ad pulled by Snapchat https://t.co/4owjd17rkH— BBC Technology (@BBCTech) March 13, 2018
• The ad, which was only shown to U.S. users and is promoting a stupid game, asks users if they would "rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown" ?
• In 2009 Chris Brown was convicted for assaulting Rihanna in his car after attending a Pre-Grammy party while they were dating.
• Snap Inc. told Newsbeat the ad was published "in error" and had been removed immediately.
• Their official statement: "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."
Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG— Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018
