Snapchat CEO feels India is 'too poor for expansion'

"Poor India & Spain need better than Snapchat", "Goodbye, My Snapchat Account and Snap Inc".

It also added that, "The employee who made the claim was "fired for poor performance", three weeks ago and has been involved in a lawsuit with the company".

Run an early-stage company? While he was addressing, Evan Spiegel, the CEO of Snapchat interrupted him. "Let's just uninstall this app", commented a user in review of Snapdeal's app while another said "poor owner".

The Snapchat legal saga continued this week after a complaint filed by a former employee was released in a public filing, exposing new details about the allegations made against the company's CEO Evan Spiegel, Variety reports.

Snapchat CEO dismissed India as "Poor": Says ex-employee - Snapchat gets a pathetic response from all over India. You see, obviously this didn't go down well with Indians using the app.

A statement allegedly made by Evan Spiegel, CEO of popular app Snapchat, in 2015 has sparked a controversy and threatened to derail the status of the app in the country.

Indians are snapping at Snapchat like never before.

On Sunday, Snapchat responded to the claim.

Now, users across India are sending hate mails, and boycott calls for this social app. While we don't know for sure if these words were actually said by the CEO or if it's merely the work of fiction by a disgruntled employee, there has been widespread social media outrage regarding the issue. Months after e-commerce giant Amazon came under fire for selling doormats with an imprint of the tricolour, it is instant image messaging app Snapchat, the darling of millennials, that now faces the ire.

Snap has said most of its daily active users are concentrated in the top 10 advertising markets worldwide - a list topped by the U.S., China, Japan and Britain. "Snap will demonstrate as much at the appropriate time in the appropriate forum", YourStory quoted excerpts from the official statement as saying.
