When Snapchat made — and pulled — a disrespectful ad making light of the violent history between singers Rihanna and Chris Brown, the company faced a backlash that may not have been worth the publicity. Now, as Rihanna weighs in herself — via Instagram’s rival Stories feature, no less — Snapchat is going to be feeling the heat more than ever as her Navy is almost guaranteed to pull whatever remaining support they had for the ailing social media picture app.
It seems nothing more needs to be said. The troubles between Rihanna and Brown are well-documented at this point, and well ingrained into both their stories, whether they like it or not.

Hopefully Rihanna’s message will change at least a few minds, including the right ones in with the power to veto decisions like this one.
