The 'Work' singer - who was assaulted by her then-boyfriend Chris Brown in February 2009 - has criticised the platform after it featured an advert that asked users whether they would rather "slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown".

Jenner's feedback reportedly caused Snapchat's stock to potentially plummet by $1.3 billion.

The "Would You Rather" ad was removed earlier this week, and Snapchat released an apology.

The shocking ad - which referred to Brown's 2009 conviction for brutally assaulting Rihanna in a vehicle - provoked disgust on social media over the weekend, with some vowing to delete Snapchat from their phones. She took to Instagram to post a story (below) that said 'I'd love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain't that dumb!

Rihanna on March 15, 2018 accused Snapchat of shaming domestic abuse victims after an advertisement made light of her beating by fellow pop star Chris Brown. She ended her comments "throw the whole app-logy away", so her fans did exactly that.

"This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service", a Snap Inc. spokesman said Thursday. The spokesman added that it would never happen again and Snap was looking into how that came to happen.

"The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines", Snap wrote.
