Laawwd have mercy!

Social media is up in arms after Snapchat allegedly posted an ad, seeming to promote domestic violence.

According to the NY Post, Snapchat has apologized for approving and promoting an ad which asked users if they “would rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.

The ad appeared to reference Chris’ conviction for assaulting Rihanna in his car after a pre-Grammy party in 2009 .

In the Snapchat ad, Rihanna is pictured posing with long red locks, was positioned next to the phrase “Slap Rihanna.” Chris was positioned directly under her, appearing to dance, next to the phrase “Punch Chris Brown.”

Shocked Snapchat users took to other social media platforms to express their disgust and question why the ad was created and approved for use.

A Snapchat spokesperson told Sun Online: “The ad was reviewed and approved in error as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.”
