Who doesn’t love the filters that Snapchat gives us? Chatting with our friends via pictures and uploading stories to show how amazing your day has been going.
But after an ex-Snapchat employee alleged that the social media platform’s CEO Evan Spiegel was not interested in expanding business to India as it was “too poor” for him, all hell broke loose on Twitter.
Although he later denied that he never said anything like that and rubbished the comment saying, “Snapchat is for everyone! It's available worldwide to download for free.”
But people never forget, do they?
Very soon after the news broke, #BoycottSnapchat started trending on Twitter, and people unified to uninstall the app from their phones.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Evan Spiegel’s alleged comments:
I'm with #BoycottSnapchat not because I condemn Spiegel's accurate comment, but because I want to see less of those obnoxious dog filters.— Debkalpa Banerjee (@debkalpa96) April 16, 2017
#boycottsnapchat now ur going to analyse how poor we are when we uninstall snapchat— Gulshan Jha (@gulshanjha110) April 16, 2017
Not just Twitter, but people took the battle to Google Play as well and gave 1 rating to the Snapchat app.
