We aren’t sure about its authenticity because the statement didn’t come directly from the CEO but was included in the lawsuit filed by Anthony Pampliano, the ex- employee of Snapchat. Yes, Anthony stated that Spiegel had said so while discussing Snapchat’s growth in a company meeting.
Spiegel’s quote has annoyed everyone because last year, Snapchat enjoyed around 4 million users from India itself.
For Indians, this is a BIG insult. The statement “India is too poor for expansion” hasn’t gone down well with many. Social media is filled with angry comments and many
people have even uninstalled the application.
Here’s how Twitter users reacted…
