    Things really aren’t going Snap’s way.Recently Instagram cloned geo-stickers that were signature feature of snapchat.The facebook owned company recently announced crossing 200 Million daily users are using it’s stories feature,which means facebook is killing snapchat in its own game.

    According to report from Variety when CEO Evan Spiegel was asked by former employee Anthony Pompliano about expansion in countries like India which 2nd highest number of internet users in the world allegedly his reply was “this app is only for rich people. I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain “.

    Enraged indian users deleted the app, gave it 1/5 rating and the hashtag #boycottsnapchat became trending on twitter.However snap’s spokesperson rubbished the claims saying he’s involved in a lawsuit with the company and India is an important demographic for Snap.

    We need to wait and watch if Evan actually said that.However damage control needs to be done from Snap’s PR department asap.
