Chrissy Teigen Left Snapchat for This Very Important Reason

"The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll...no bueno". "I'd love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain't that dumb!", she wrote.

In the meantime, we wanna know... And earlier this month, Rihanna rebuked Snapchat for running an ad that asked users whether they would rather slap her or punch her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, who assaulted the singer in 2009.

Chrissy Teigen broadcasting her decision to leave probably won't help the already struggling app gain back its users' trust, but given that her social media numbers pale in comparison to both Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, her decision may not affect Snapchat as harshly.

Teigen cited Snapchat's much-despised app redesign as well as an ad that appeared to make light of domestic violence as her reasons for departing.


Snap Inc subsequently apologized for the ad and confirmed that it launched an investigation into the issue.A spokesperson for the company said: "This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service".

It's unclear if Teigen's comments will also have the same effect. "You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it. Shame on you". Shame on you. Throw the whole app-ology away. "The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines", the company stated on Tuesday, March 13. We are so sorry we made the bad mistake of allowing it through our review process.

After Rihanna deleted Snapchat, the company's stock fell 4 percent just hours after she announced it and when Kylie Jenner complained about the new redesign in February, the stock fell a whopping 8 percent.

According to CNN, Snapchat lost $800 million in stock market value after being called out by the pop star. Or is it just me. ugh this is so sad.
