Indians online have a reputation for their thin skin and patriotic zeal. A rich, blond CEO looking down his nose at the country is the reddest of rags for the angriest of bulls. According to an ex-employee involved in a lawsuit against Snapchat, the image messaging service’s founder Evan Spiegel said two years ago that he didn’t want to “expand into poor countries like India and Spain”. If only India were as poor as Spain. While little is known about the Spanish reaction, Indians have responded with abuse and a fusillade of angry 1-star reviews of Snapchat on Apple’s App Store. Some Indian trolls have taken to heaping scorn on Spiegel’s fiancee, Australian model Miranda Kerr. And Indian hackers claimed to have leaked details of 1.7 million Snapchat users. That’ll teach them.
