Yesterday, we reported the news about Snapchat's outrageous ad poking fun at Rihanna's 2009 domestic abuse altercation with Chris Brown.
The apology the company presented came as no surprise as the app has been losing millions of users and dollars with its recent antics.
“We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened,” the statement read.
Rihanna, the clap back queen, took to her Instagram story to give the good folks over at Snapchat a very tasteful yet necessary read. This isn't her first time at the rodeo, and sis had to give them a quick reminder.
Rihanna isn't the only one that had some words for the social media app. Chris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, told Us Weekly in an exclusive statement on Thursday, March 15, the app "should change their name from Snapchat to Tone Deaf."
Chelsea Clinton, an advocate for women and children's rights, took to Twitter to voice her concerns.
Just awful. Awful that anyone thinks this is funny. Awful that anyone thinks this is appropriate. Awful that any company would approve this. Thank you Brittany for calling this out.

Snapchat, it may be time to shut down business or consider some serious rebranding.
