Miranda Kerr faces social media backlash for being engaged to SnapChat CEO
It's a controversy that refuses to die down and now Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr finds herself caught up in it as well.
Over the weekend, reports emerged that a former Snapchat employee had alleged that the social media company's CEO, Evan Spiegel, was not interested in expanding his business to 'poor' countries like India and Spain. A number of Indians took to social media to express their anger with these unverified comments. Now Ms Kerr is being viciously trolled on her various social media profiles - because she is engaged to the Snapchat CEO.
From her official Facebook page, to her Twitter handle and Instagram account - there does not seem to be a social media platform that Ms Kerr is not being attacked on. Many of the comments are abusive.
Here are a few comments on a Facebook photo:
