The case in question is a lawsuit made by a former employee, Anthony Pompliaono who left the company in 2015.

The dip put Snap on track to close at its lowest level in almost a month, a bad sign following its $3.4 billion public listing that was the hottest by a technology company in three years.

Facebook does innovation to serve "everyone" in the community and not just the "high end", its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said in an apparent swipe at Snapchat boss' reported "poor countries" remark that triggered a controversy in India. "It's available worldwide to download for free", they said.

Here's how a major part of India reacted once they heard that Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel was not interested in expanding the business to "poor countries" like India and Spain.

It's after a former employee accused Snapchat's chief executive Evan Spiegel of saying the app was "for rich people" in 2015.

Spiegel allegedly said: "This app is only for rich people".

In spite of the denial, angry Snapchat users took to the internet.

It prompted some users in India to start deleting the app. As news of the alleged comments spread, #BoycottSnapchat and #Uninstall_Snapchat began trending in India and around the world.

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.

In 2013, a different group of hackers released a database of what it claimed contained 4.6 million Snapchat users, revealing usernames and passwords.

Meanwhile, quite unfortunately, stuck in the crossfire was Indian-based e-commerce company Snapdeal, as users mistook Snapdeal for Snapchat. He is from Portland OR by way of the United Kingdom.
