Rihanna has called out social media platform Snapchat after the company ran an ad featuring the star that was in decidedly bad taste.

The animation featured a picture of Rihanna and Chris Brown, and asked users to vote which one they would rather 'slap' or 'punch.' 

The ads calls to memory the incident in 2009, when Rihanna pressed charges against Chris Brown for assault. 

Taking to Instagram stories, she said: 'Now Snapchat, I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there!'

'But 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 spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!!'

'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!'

The app responded to the criticism in a statement, according to The Verge: 'This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service.'

'We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again.' 

Following the backlash, Snapchat stock fell by 5pc, in a similar manner as to when Kylie Jenner recently posted a negative tweet about the app.

Chris Brown has spoken out about the night he assaulted his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in a revealing new documentary.

The singer was found guilty of felony assault following an altercation that took place on the night of February 8, 2009.

He was sentenced to six months community service and placed on probation for five years, for the attack which left Rhianna with severe facial injuries.

Eight years later, the 28-year-old is speaking about the night in question for his new documentary, Chris Brown: Welcome to my Life.

According to Chris, the incident began when a woman he had previously been intimate with showed up at the same pre-Grammy party he and Rhianna were attending.

Upset by the situation, Rihanna burst into tears before the couple's argument escalated on the way home.

Chris said: "She starts going off, she throws the phone, “I hate you!”, whatever, whatever, she starts hitting me, we’re in a little Lamborghini, you know she’s fighting me."

"Like I remember she tried to kick me, just like her beating sh*t, but then I really hit her. With a closed fist, like I punched her, and it busted her lip, and when I saw it I was in shock, I was “f*ck, why did I hit her like that?"

Chris had originally claimed he had no idea the woman would be at the party, however, after looking through his phone, Rihanna found an unread message from her saying she would be there.

"So from there she’s…spitting blood in my face, it raised me even more. It’s a real fight in the car, and we driving in the street."

He added: "She grabbed my nuts. And when she did that, I bite her arm while I’m still trying to drive."

Speaking about the aftermath of the incident, Chris said: “She hated me. After that, I tried everything. She didn't care, she just didn't trust me after that."

“From there, it just went downhill because it would be fights, it would be verbal fights, physical fights as well. Mutual sides, it is the first time I get to say anything."

The pair briefly reunited in 2013, however the relationship did not last. Rihanna is currently rumoured to be dating billionaire businessman, Hassan Jameel.

Having been recently arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, Chris is currently awaiting arraignment, and has, in the meantime, been approached by investigators from the Department of Children & Family Services.

According to TMZ, the star's ex, Nia Guzman, has filed a complaint against the singer in light of the claims against him, with reports suggesting that Nia, the mother of Chris' two-year-old daughter Royalty, is concerned for her child's safety.

It is understood that the With You singer refused officials and a member of the LAPD entry into his home on Thursday and forced them to wait outside his property.

Chris' court date following his most recent brush with the law has been postponed as officials further investigate the case.

Speaking last month, Colin explained that he would not be standing for the national anthem at public events all in an effort to raise awareness of social injustice.

"It's 9/11 have some respect for the lives lost. Any other day do as you wish. But have some sympathy," urged another.

Ever since the Video Music Awards aired on Sunday night, everyone has been talking about Drake and Rihanna.

After declaring his love for her on-stage in front of millions, most people crossed their fingers and hoped that it might just be the real thing for the Hotline Bling singer.

Most people, that is, except Rihanna's ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

According to Hollywood Life, the rapper, who was charged with assaulting Rihanna in 2009, has little time for Drake's heartfelt declarations.

"Drake‘s doing too much and Chris is laughing at him behind his back," a source told the website. "Between the billboard and the speech – that’s not being a gentlemen, that’s just being corny."

Chris, who is no position to dole out advice on how to treat a woman, is also fairly certain that his ex-girlfriend is nowhere near as interested in Drake as he is in her.

"Drake is trying to be all smooth, but he’s failing because Rihanna doesn’t want him," the insider added.

Well, we'll let Rihanna be the judge of that one, Chris.
