Snapchat’s CEO Evan Spiegel comment about not expanding his business to poor countries like India has got him flak across India. People have uninstalled the app and got its rating down to just one. But now the parent company Snap Inc has denied the allegation saying that no such remark was made.
According to US-based news website Variety quoted that Snapchat ex-employee Anthony Pompliano as saying that Evan had told him that the app is for rich people and he does not want to expand to poor countries like India and Spain.
It was criticized by Indians and was trolled on twitter with hashtag boycottsnapchat. Snapchat has more than four million users in India.
Also because of all this another company that faced the heat was Snapdeal. Many users have uninstalled that app instead of Snapchat. A case of mistaken identity!
