Earlier this week, Brown made headlines after Snapchat posted an advertisement that made light of his assault conviction. The message asked users whether they’d rather “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” A spokesperson for the social media app apologized in a statement on Wednesday, March 14, saying the “advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines.”

Rihanna, 30, released a statement of her own on Instagram the following day, writing, “I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb! … You let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away.”
Jenner and Sheeran have yet to publicly respond to the backlash.
