While Snapchat has been one of the most popular apps for people in India, the CEO of the application, Evan Spiegel has said that India is “too poor” to seriously consider expanding its user base.
The comment was made by Evan Spiegel, the CEO of Snapchat during a meeting to discuss the growth of the app’s user base in 2015. An employee during the meeting asked Spiegel about the app’s slow growth in the Indian market which has a growing mobile penetration. The CEO then quoted “This app is only for rich people. I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”
The Indians took notice of the comment and soon snap chat became a trending topic on Twitter. People took no time in slamming the CEO for his comments and trolled him heavily. People even started campaigns to boycott the app and rate it one star to decrease its popularity. While the news went viral on social media and people are busy expressing their views on the comment made by Evan Spiegel, Indian commentator Aakash Chopra came up with a tweet which went viral within seconds.
The former Indian batsman tweeted “What’s Snapchat?” from his official Twitter handle. Not only the cricketer but no Indian is leaving the opportunity to troll Evan Spiegel for his disparaging comment on the country’s economy. Aakash Chopra’s wonderful reply clearly portrays the love he has for the country and its people. He gave a fitting reply to Evan Spiegel and every Indian should be proud of what the experienced cricket analyst did.
Aakash Chopra is a highly active individual on Twitter and is also an active member of the Indian Premier League commentary panel. The former player got the support of many other Indians on his status as all the Indians are uniting against the disgraceful comment.
What's Snapchat? ?
