Rihanna isn’t the only celebrity to condemn Snapchat, as model Chrissy Teigen recently dropped the app as well, resulting in it’s stock taking an even deeper dive.
The model and wife of R&B crooner John Legend tweeted Saturday that she would be deleting the app following their insensitive ad making light of abuse, as well as it’s widely criticized redesign.
“The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll…no bueno,” Teigen wrote.
I stopped using snap. The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll…no bueno

Is this the end for Snapchat?
