You all already heard about how #Snapchat tried to make a joke about Rihanna’s 2009 domestic violence incident with Chris Brown, well now they’ve put out a statement apologizing to the singer.

“This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service. 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,” Snapchat told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.

The ad has since been pulled but its audience, and of course, Rihanna’s Navy still aren’t here for their “app-ology” as Rih coined it. Snapchat claims the mobile video game ad, which supposedly wasn’t directly connected to the social media platform, has been blocked from the site because it failed to follow the app’s advertising policies.
