Spanish are 'too poor' for Snapchat

"I don't want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain", Spiegel said, according to Anthony Pompliano, who worked at the company for three weeks after moving over from Facebook. When he was asked about the app's slow growth in a market like India, he is reported to have said that the (Snapchat) app was "only for the rich people".

According to CNN, a spokesperson from Snapchat dismissed the claim as ridiculous; adding that the mobile application is available worldwide for free downloads.

In fact, people have already made YouTube videos on the issue, proclaiming how Mukesh Ambani's net worth is much more than Snap and how he can buy the company easily if he wishes to. Hashtags like #BoycottSnapchat and #Uninstall Snapchat have also started trending on Facebook and Twitter.

Twitter users also used the hashtag #1star to encourage others to damage the app's rating and write scathing reviews on both Android and iOS-as of today, Snapchat has a one star rating on the Indian App Store.

The logo of messaging app Snapchat is seen at a booth at TechFair LA, a technology job fair, in Los Angeles, California, U.S., January 26.
