Los Angeles police are investigating a fight between Chris Brown -- still on probation for beating girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 -- and fellow singer Frank Ocean, a spokesman said January 28, 2013. Ocean wants Brown -- who has apparently reunited with Rihanna in recent months -- to be prosecuted over the weekend altercation, reportedly over a parking place at a recording studio, according to the LA Times newspaper.

"Would you rather: Slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown?" was the question that greeted some Snapchat users who were served an advertisement for a game called "Would You Rather?" this week. 

Now, Rihanna is making her opinions known about the ad, posting an anti-Snapchat missive to her Instagram Stories Thursday.

"Now Snapchat I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there," she wrote in the text-based post. "But I'm just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I'd love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain't that dumb! “You spent money to animate something that would bring intentional shame to DV (domestic violence) victims and made a joke of it!"

"This isn't about my personal feelings, cause I don't have much of them...but to 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 down!" she continued. "Shame on you. Throw the whole app-ology away." 

A spokesperson for Snapchat issued a statement to USA TODAY apologizing for the ad, which references Chris Brown's 2009 domestic violence incident that left ex-girlfriend Rihanna with a bloodied face.

“This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service," the statement reads. "We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again.”

Other social media users also began pointing out the Snapchat ad earlier this week, eventually drawing the attention of former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, who expressed her criticism in a tweet.

"Just awful. Awful that anyone thinks this is funny. Awful that anyone thinks this is appropriate. Awful that any company would approve this," she wrote.

Brown plead guilty to assault after an altercation the night of the 2009 Grammys left Rihanna bloody and bruised, according to photos of her face that were leaked to the public. Brown was sentenced to serve five years probation and 1,400 hours of community service.

This incident isn't the first time Snap has landed in trouble for issues regarding race and gender. The app's users have previously criticized the company for racism after it issued filters allowing users to don virtual "black-face" or "yellow-face" by pretending to be Bob Marley or an anime figure. 

A string of high-level female execs have also recently left the company, according to the Information, and Snap has only one woman on the board.
