The internet is already in a storm when Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel said that he is not looking forward to expanding in India because it is a poor country. Understandably, the crowd was outraged and they took a step by uninstalling this app and give a poor rating.
The urge to defend their country’s image by people is quite understandable unless someone else starts paying for the situation. This is what exactly happened when most started confusing Snapchat with Snapdeal.
Instead of the chatting app, many people started uninstalling and downrating the app of this online business platform. The company is already struggling with their loss of Rs. 3300 crore and now this new situation is nothing less than a cruel joke of fate.
The CEO Kunal Bahl tweeted.”People asking us to make statement that @snapdeal is not @snapchat was possibly the last thing I thought I would ever need to do.” This is certainly a very bad news for the online portal who is now trying to evaluate the offers of the merger from Flipkart and Paytm.
This outburst out of confusion is denting the image of Snapdeal in a bad way. Showing emotions and standing up for country’s image is a nice thing to do unless you target the wrong concern. So, people if you are also joining the rage, remember it is SNAPCHAT, not SNAPDEAL.
