After comments attributed to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel that Indians are “too poor” to use his app came to light, outraged users in the country are taking action -- against the wrong company.

Axar.az reports that according to a former employee, Spiegel said that he doesn't want the company to advance into "poor countries, such as India or Spain." Now thousands of users have uninstalled both the Snapchat messaging app, and a number of entirely unrelated apps, from their smartphones.
The anger-inducing remark was allegedly made back in 2015, but has only now come to light after a judge ruled that former employee Anthony Pompliano's lawsuit, filed earlier this year, could be made public.

"This app is only for rich people," Spiegel said, according to Pompliano. "I don't want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain."

The comment, included in the opened court documents, has sparked massive outrage in India. According to a report by the Daily Mail, a group of hackers-turned-internet-security-auditors leaked the data from 1.7 million accounts and published it for free on the dark web.
