Have you heard about the Snapchat #Boycott going on around the Internet? It is mainly from Indians because of a comment that was made on social media by the CEO of Snapchat, Evan Spiegel. According to reports, Spiegel stated that Snapchat was for rich people and poor people should not be downloading it or using it at all. Because of this rather rude comment from the CEO of the social media app, there is now not only a Snapchat boycott going around online by Indians but there is also a lawsuit happening against Spiegel, the CEO of the social media app.
Although Spiegel was supposed to have made this rude and nasty comment, Snapchat made a statement saying that the social media app is a free app download for anyone to use and enjoy. Also, the one who filed the lawsuit against the company is an ex-employee of Snapchat.
Also, reports state, the ex-employee of the Snapchat, who is suing the company, says he found evidence that the advertisers who support the social media app are being misled by the metrics and numbers of daily active users. Although Pompliano, who is suing Snapchat for the rude and mean comments made by the CEO, went to the higher-ups with his evidence but was quickly dismissed by them.
