Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel allegedly said his app was for rich people.
According to Yahoo News, allegations that Spiegel said he doesn’t want to expand into “poor” countries came from a court complaint by Anthony Pompliano.
Pompliano served as the company’s growth lead for a few weeks in 2015.
According to docs, Spiegel said;
“I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”
Snap Inc. is denying the allegations and calling them “ridiculous,” according to reports.
Since the allegations, the popular app company has received less than mediocre ratings, especially in countries outside the US.
The scale of anger against India is so high in the Valley that many Kashmiris have installed @Snapchat because its CEO ‘insulted’ poor India.
I am very poor so uninstalled #snapchat but thanks for entertaining for this many days. @evanspiegel @Snapchat don’t mess with India.
