Chrissy Teigen Leaves Snapchat Following Rihanna’s Attack on Platform

The Associated Press

Model Chrissy Teigen announced her departure as a user from Snapchat, Saturday, following Rihanna’s own attack on the platform this month.

“I stopped using snap,” declared Teigen on Twitter, Saturday. “The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll…no bueno.”

The post received over 87,000 likes, and according to Variety, Snap’s stock was down by 2 percent following the tweet.

Earlier this month, pop musician Rihanna slammed Snapchat for allowing an advertisement that appeared to mock domestic abuse on the platform.

The ad, which Snapchat eventually removed, asked users whether they would “rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown,” appearing to reference a 2009 incident where Rihanna’s former boyfriend Chris Brown beat the musician up, leaving her bloodied and requiring hospitalization.

In February, reality television star Kylie Jenner caused Snap’s stock to drop $1.3 billion after she publicly declared her dissatisfaction with the platform’s latest update changes.
