Rihanna took to social media to blast SnapChat for their tasteless and downright ignorant ad that made a joke out of domestic violence.
The “Who Would You Rather” ad asked users if they would rather “Slap Rihanna” or “Punch Chris Brown.”
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

In her statement, Rih Rih said, “I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!”
She blasted SC for paying money for something that would intentionally bring shame to victims of domestic violence.
The social media network issued an apology through BBC that read:
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.
Rihanna advised them to “throw the whole app-ology away!”

SnapChat is canceled for this tomfoolery!
