One of the most popular messaging application, Snapchat, has denied claims that the app was for the rich and not for poor countries like India and Spain, report says.
Snapchat CEO, Evan Spiegel, said that the unverified comments purportedly made by him were not true.
Reports say about 1.7 million Indians that use the app, are angry with Snap Inc over the comments that portrayed the Indian market as poor.
According to Indian Express, trouble started for the company when former employee, Anthony Pompliano, claimed Spiegel made the comments. Pompliano also claimed the company was distorting user data and misleading advertisers.
But Spiegel described Pompliano’s allegations as the comments of “a disgruntled employee fired for poor performance.”
Terming the allegation false, Snap Inc said that it was not lying to advertisers or investors that they had 100 million daily active users or DAUs.
