The CEO of Mobile App ‘Snapchat’, Evan Spiegel, allegedly called India a poor, Indian social media users took him back.
Campaign on the social media is called #boycottsnapchat. People are tweeting with # boycottsnapchat and #uninstallsnapchat.
Those who had put a snapchat in their phone, suddenly they started removing it from the phone.
Itna hi nahi log snapchat ko delete karne eala screenshot bhi share kar rahe hain.
In fact, in a report published in American Variety Magazine, Anthony Ppliana, a former employee of Snapchat, wrote that CEO Evan Spiegel had said that his app is only for the rich and India aur Spain jaise gareeb desho mein vo apne app ka vistaar nahi karana chaahate.
Employee Anthony Ppliana, who was removed from the company, claimed that Evan had said this during the meeting in 2015 about the growth of the user base of the Snapchat app.
After the report came to light, the anger of the people of India broke out.
Now on this whole dispute, Snapchat has clarified that his CEO never gave such a statement.
He said that snapchat is for everyone. This app is available for free download worldwide.
Company CEO Evan Spiegel never gave such a statement, but it is the argument of fellow collaborator Anthony Ppliana, who was fired from Snapchat.
Let us tell you that Snapchat has more than 40 lakhs users in India.
But after this entire dispute many people went to the Play Store and gave Snapchat’s app one star. Which has dropped its rating.
