Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, in a lawsuit filed by a former employee, has been accused of commenting that he has no intentions of expanding services into poor countries like India and Spain.
As per reports, the lawsuit filed in LA district court on Monday by a former employee named Anthony Pompliano makes a range of claims about the company, including that Snap Inc shared inflated metrics during the time of its IPO.
According to the lawsuit, Pompliano worked at the firm for three weeks before he was fired for uncovering ‘massive internal systematic failure’ and reporting it to seniors. Snapchat’s legal team called Pompliano a “disgruntled employee fired for poor performance”.
Upon hearing this news, Indians in twitter started showing their anger towards snap chat and CEO, thus they started uninstalling the application and also asking others to do the same:
