Chrissy Teigen has become the latest celebrity to leave Snapchat

Earlier this year, Kylie Jenner, one of the most influential voices in youth celebrity culture, tweeted that her Snapchat use was waning. The question was a reference to the 2009 domestic violence incident when the two singers were dating that left Rihanna bruised and bloodied. The ad, which gave users the option to slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown, was widely criticised for making light of domestic violence.

The Sports Illustrated model - who is expecting her second child with husband John Legend, with whom she already has 23-month-old daughter Luna - has made a decision to avoid the social media app after Rihanna accused the company of shaming victims of domestic abuse. Many users, who were already upset with the company's latest update, felt that the insensitive Rihanna ad was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Snapchat issued an apology in mid-March after an ad - posted for the "Would You Rather" game on Snapchat and only visible to U.S. users - seemed to reference the 2009 assault involving Rihanna and Chris Brown.

On Saturday, the 32-year-old model took to Twitter to reveal that she is no longer using the social media app following the awful update and controversial Rihanna and Chris Brown poll!

"All the women, children and men that have been victims of [domestic violence] in the past and especially the ones who haven't made it out yet ... you let us down!"

Soon after, many Snapchat users declared that they were going to delete their accounts. I just don't see how the choice affects anyone else.

Snapchat had previously issued a statement apologizing for the controversial ad, which was pulled after it made its rounds on the internet. In another instance, shares plunged 6% after Kylie Jenner said she didn't like the app's updated design and hinted that she didn't use the platform as much anymore.
