Rihanna has responded to Snapchat’s recent poll which asked users if they would ‘rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.’
The ad was slammed for appearing to joke about Brown’s conviction for assaulting Rihanna in 2009 while the two were dating.
The company have since said it ‘never should have appeared on our service.’
The Bajan singer replied to the controversial post in an Instagram story.
Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG

I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb.
This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them… but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet.
You let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-ology away.
