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.

Reportedly, nearly 400,000 users in India deleted the Snapchat app from their phones between Saturday and Sunday.

Here's how Twitterati has reacted to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel's comment calling India poor. In the document, Pompliaono, who was the company's growth lead for a few weeks in 2015, recounts a September 2015 meeting he had with the CEO regarding Snapchat's global growth plans. Twitter campaigns such as #UninstallSnapchat and #BoycottSnapchat have devalued the app's rating from five stars to one on the Apple store. "Obviously, Snapchat is for everyone".

The critical remarks about the company by Pompliano stem from his lawsuit in which he claimed he was sacked from his position after he questioned Snapchat's internal methods for calculating daily active users. "I don't want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain", Spiegel is alleged to have said.

In a statement Snap said: "Those words were written by a disgruntled former employee".

Popular singer Adnan Sami, who became an Indian citizen after the Indian Home Ministry approved his request for legal status as a citizen of India, effective as of 1 January 2016 recently found himself embroiled in a Snapchat controversy.

However, many people downgraded and uninstalled the mobile application of e-commerce platform Snapdeal instead of Snapchat in a mist of confusion to mark their protest against the comment made by Snapchat CEO about the Indian market.
