The social media platform recently published an advert that mocked domestic violence.
If the headline of this article doesn't already have your blood boiling, the following news will.
Snapchat has been forced to pull a recent advert that made a light-hearted reference to violence against women, most notably Chris Brown's domestic assault against his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
Over the weekend, screenshots of the advertisement for a 'Would You Rather!' game inundated Twitter, showing an image from the social media platform that asked users whether they'd prefer to 'Slap Rihanna' or 'Punch Chris Brown.'
The advert unsurprisingly upset Twitter users including former first child, Chelsea Clinton, who called the advert 'awful'.

Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG

Just awful. Awful that anyone thinks this is funny. Awful that anyone thinks this is appropriate. Awful that any company would approve this. Thank you Brittany for calling this out.
