Snapchat is one app, that has gained tremendous popularity in India in recent years. The app has some really wacky features that make us express our emotions in the craziest way possible. For millennials, Snapchat is quite an addiction, and is one of the most loved apps.

But it seems that this love is one-sided because an ex-employee of Snapchat claimed that Evan Spiegel, Snapchat CEO, once stated,     “This app is only for rich people. I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”

The ex-employee, Anthony Pompliano, made this statement about Evan Spiegel in his lawsuit that he filed against Snapchat for “misleading people of their growth”.



This insensitive statement by Snapchat CEO, obviously, didn’t go well with Indians, and they started trending #BoycottSnapchat. Twitter users disgraced Snapchat savagely, and rightly outlined the richness of India.

India is a promising market.

Can you beat that?

Evan Spiegel, take this.

Well, the bank knows it all.

The money is here.

Still counting?

You lost a fan, actually, you lost a country.

But we still love you.

Karma is a bitch.
