Published Mar 15, 2018Rihanna has responded to an ad recently run on Snapchat, condemning the app for making a joke out of domestic violence.
The offending ad was for a game called "Would you rather?" by Impossible Choices, and featured the teaser question: "Would you rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown?"
Rihanna lashed out at Snapchat for running the ad. In her Instagram story, she denounced the app because they "spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it."
She went on to say that she wasn't concerned about her own feelings ("cause I don't have much of them"), but was concerned for women, children and men that have suffered or are currently suffering domestic violence.
"You let us down!" she ended. "Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away."

Rihanna's ex Chris Brown infamously assaulted the singer back in 2009. Fans still haven't forgotten the incident, as demonstrated last month when Brown raised eyebrows for sending Rihanna a public birthday greeting on Instagram. The post has since been deleted.
