Sephora Hosts Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Launches in Paris

The ad made light of the domestic abuse incident that happened between Rihanna and Chris Brown back in 2009 when they were dating.

The advert, which is for a game, asks users if they would "rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown".

Yes, people are still making off-beat references to that Rihanna and Chris Brown mess nearly a decade later. "The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines", they said. "We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware", adding "We are sorry that this happened". (BBC)Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf?

Royce Mann was one of the first to tweet about the ad's offensive premise, and activists like Brittany Packnett helped the story gain traction.

"The update isn't the only thing that's wack friends". Terrible that anyone thinks this is appropriate.

He pleaded guilty to assaulting his former girlfriend and was sentenced to 180 days of community service for the attack. "Very bad that any company would approve this", she wrote.

If you or someone you know is dealing with issues around sexual violence or domestic or family violence, you can call 1800 RESPECT on 1800 737 732, the Mens Helpline on 1300 78 99 78, or the Kids Helpline (ages 5 to 25) on 1800 55 1800.

Snapchat pulled its "Would You Rather?" ad, apologized and blamed its placement on an internal error.

According to the apps ad policy, users are prohibited from posting any content "depicting excessive violence, including the harming of animals" also ads that are "shocking, sensational, or disrespectful...demean, degrade, or show hate toward a particular race, gender, culture, country, belief, or toward any member of a protected class" are forbidden.
