Snapchat CEO’s Supposed Comments On The Indian Market That Broke Social Media

By Arkadeep Deb, 26 April 2017


Unless you have been living under the proverbial rock, in the last few days, you have to have heard about the Snapchat CEO’s comment on the Indian market and the ensuing fiasco that followed. There has not been a bigger faux pas in the Tech industry in recent times, unless you have publicly claimed allegiance to Microsoft’s Zune media player over the Apple iPod. Fear not, let’s make a quick go through of the incident involving the Snapchat CEO’s supposed alleged on the Indian market that broke social media.

1 The bone of contention: In the beginning…


First let us peal the unfortunate onion an incident down to its basics. The comments the CEO of Snapchat allegedly made, are not quotes documented in any recent public speech. The comments Evan Spiegel, the CEO of Snapchat has been accused of allegedly making are from 2015; and the statement in question “poor countries like India and Spain”, is one which he has been accused of making in a lawsuit to Snapchat by the former employee, Anthony Publiano. However, Publiano’s main objective behind the lawsuit is the fact that he blames the CEO Spiegel and co-founder Bobby Murphy of fabricating numbers and misleading advertisers. If the fallout from the supposed comment made by Spiegel is to be checked, majority of the feedback speaks nothing of Publiano or states the fact whether this has been verified by a court of law.
