Model and influencer Chrissy Teigen has dealt a major blow to Snapchat this weekend, by revealing that she no longer uses the platform.
This isn’t the first trouble that Snapchat has run into—Kylie Jenner’s dissatisfaction with the platform caused its stock to drop by $1.3 billion in February, when she revealed that she majorly disliked the app’s redesign.
This was swiftly followed by Rihanna‘s anger at Snapchat for sharing an offensive advert, which asked users if they’d rather “slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.” Rihanna released a statement on Instagram Stories about the incident which said:
“You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but all the women, children, and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us know! Shame on you.”
Now, Teigen has revealed that she has officially left Snapchat, and was moved to do so following the Rihanna scandal. She tweeted, “I stopped using snap. The update, the constant complaints of people not being able to find me, plus the Rihanna poll…no bueno.”

The model’s decision to leave Snapchat altogether is likely to influence her fans to do the same, and could cause the platform to depreciate in value even further.
Snapchat’s CEO, Evan Spiegel, has continued to defend the app’s redesign, and at the Goldman Sachs Internet & Technology Conference (via TechCrunch) revealed, “It’ll take time for people to adjust, but for me using it for a couple months, I feel way more attached to the service.” However, no-one seems to be adjusting.
