Snapchat came under fire earlier this week after an ad appeared on the app asking whether or not users would want to "slap Rihanna" or "punch Chris Brown," referencing the night Brown assaulted Rihanna in 2009.

After the backlash, Snapchat yanked the ad from the platform and issued an apology, explaining that it was reviewed and approved in error — but just because an apology was made, doesn't mean it will be accepted. On Thursday, Rihanna hopped on her Instagram stories to share her thoughts on the incident.

"Now SNAPCHAT," she began, "I know you already know you ain't my fav app out there! But I'm just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!"

"I'd love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain't that dumb! You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to [domestic violence] victims and made a joke of it!!!," she wrote.

Not today, not ever, Snapchat.

"This isn't about my personal feelings, cus I don't have much of them...but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven't made it out yet...you let us down!," she continued. 

"Shame on you," Rihanna wrote. "Throw the whole app-oligy away."

Throw  👏 the  👏 whole  👏 app-oligy 👏 away. 

Her biting comments already have some people ready to ditch the app once and for all.

When it comes to getting celebrity love, 2018 isn't looking good for Snapchat at all. Yikes.
