He referred to India and Spain as “Poor Countries” and will not consider them for expansion. He also remarked that the app is only for rich. These comments drew irk on the social media with netizens lashing out at the CEO asking for immediate boycott by uninstalling the app and to give poor rating on Google App Store to make the billionaire to become a millionaire overnight.
Mr Spiegel has not retracted or apologised yet for his statement.
