Snapchat Show to Pre-Release Adidas’ Falcon W on Saturday

Snap Inc. and Darkstore are partnering with Adidas to pre-release a new model of the Originals sneaker in “Fashion 5 Ways,” a new Snapchat show debuting this Saturday. The move is the first product launch for the ephemeral social network’s programmatic content.
Inspired by Nineties running shoes, the kicks — Adidas’ Originals Falcon W sneaker — will be featured in the first episode of Thumb Candy Media’s “Fashion 5 Ways,” a series from the creators of one of Snapchat’s most popular shows, “Nail the Look.” The show features women exploring creative ways to wear fashion staples, like sneakers, and the first episode will be available in the app’s Discover page.
In addition, “Fashion 5 Ways’” audience will also be able to buy the shoe right from the show by just swiping up. This is the first time a Snap show has ever offered product purchases, though it’s not the first deal between Snap and a shoe company. The social network had a previous “shoe drop” with Nike in February, but that required a physical presence and Snapcode scanning.
This is the latest move in Snap’s bid to become an e-commerce hub, pushing social commerce via shopping from ads.
As a pre-release, Falcon W will

Snapchat Stock Drops $800 Million After Rihanna Condemned Ad Making Light of Domestic Violence

Less than a month after Kylie Jenner sent Snapchat stock into a downward spiral, another celebrity slam on the photo-sharing app has seemingly caused the company to take a major hit.

The stock prices of Snap Inc. fell around 4 percent on Thursday, reported CNN. The dip came after Rihanna responded to the app’s apology for running an ad for a game called “Would You Rather” asking users if they would rather slap Rihanna or punch her ex Chris Brown, alluding to a 2009 domestic violence incident. The market value of the app’s parent company dropped almost $ 800 million, according to the outlet.

On Friday, Snap’s stock fell another 1 percent, CNN reported.

Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel’s personal net worth dropped $ 150 million due to the decease, according to Forbes. He is currently worth an estimated $ 3.8 billion, Forbes reported.

In 2009, Rihanna’s then-boyfriend Brown physically assaulted her in his car ahead of a Grammys party.

Brown, now 28, was charged with two felony counts — assault and making criminal threats — and the exes reached a plea agreement that spared Brown jail time after he pleaded guilty to felony assault by means likely to cause great bodily injury.

After the social media app apologized on Tuesday for running the since-pulled ad, Rihanna responded via Instagram on Thursday.

“Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! 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!” the 30-year-old singer wrote in an Instagram Story.

“You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but 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!” Rihanna’s post continued.

“Shame on you,” she added. “Throw the whole app-oligy away.”

A lawyer for the Brown shared the following statement with PEOPLE: “Whoever conceived this at Snap Chat needs to be slapped.”

“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 said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.

After removing the ad from the app on Tuesday, Snapchat also released the following statement to the BBC: “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.”

Last month, Snapchat’s stock dropped $ 1.3 billion in market value, according to Time, after Jenner revealed to her followers that she no longer opens the app.

The outlet also reported Wall Street analyst Mark May downgraded the stock to sell from neutral after the app’s redesign sparked negative reviews from users.

Pregnant Kylie Jenner Shows Off New Short ‘Do on Snapchat: ‘Cut Off All My Hair Again’

Kylie Jenner has cut off all her hair — again!

On Saturday, the pregnant Keeping Up With the Kardashians star showed off her new haircut on Snapchat. “Cut off all my hair again,” she wrote alongside a video featuring her newly shorn hair.

Jenner had previously shared a video on Snapchat which appeared to show her BFF Jordyn Woods cutting her hair with kitchen scissors.

“Jordyn’s cutting my hair with some kitchen scissors,” Jenner said, before Woods told her friend’s hairstylist that he should “watch out” because she was coming for him.

But this is hardly the first time Jenner has changed up her hairstyle.

In September 2015, the Kylie Cosmetics founder revealed in a post on her app that she first dyed her hair at the age of 16 without getting permission from mom Kris Jenner.

“After that, I’ve just had this addiction to changing my hair. It makes me feel like a new person. I love feeling different and I love leaving the house knowing that nobody has ever seen me this way,” she wrote, and added that she doesn’t really like to keep one style for too long.

She also revealed that as a result of her obsession with hair dye, her mane has become damaged, so she often turns to wigs and extensions to give her strands a break. “Wigs are just SO much easier because I change my mind so much and this way I’m not damaging my hair,” she added.

But in August, Jenner made a shocking announcement: she was “over” her crazy-colored wigs.

“I don’t want to disappoint anybody, but I just want my hair long and black and pretty,” the star told Woods, her assistant Victoria Villarroel and her makeup artist Ariel Tejada during an episode of Life of Kylie.

“I don’t want to be a weirdo. I don’t want to pull up with purple hair, I’m over it,” she continued, later adding that she was “over keeping up with this lifestyle of crazy hair and wigs and s–t.”

On Saturday, Thompson, 26, shared an sweet video of the two of them together, where he adorably complained about being too full while leaning against his girlfriend’s pregnant belly.

“I ate too much,” he complains at the start of the video, after previously documenting their dinner date with friends.

“Your tummy hurts?” Kardashian, 33, asks while rubbing his chest.

“My tummy hurts, ” he confirmed, as the Revenge Body star gently laughed.

On Tuesday, PEOPLE confirmed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was expecting her first child with Thompson.

“Yes, Khloé and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source told PEOPLE. “This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle.

Khloé is one of three Kardashian-Jenner siblings expecting a child.

Khloé’s pregnancy news came just days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Kylie Jenner was expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott.

On Thursday, Kim Kardashian West confirmed that she and her husband Kanye West were expecting their third child via surrogate in a teaser trailer for season 14 of KUWTK.

“Tristan and I definitely talk about starting a family,” the Good American designer remarked during a trailer for season 13 of KUWTK. “He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely. We could start at one and we could grow from there.”

In an interview with YOU magazine in August, she elaborated, saying, “Tristan is a great dad and he definitely wants more children, but we both feel that it will happen when the time is right. We’re still in a new relationship and I love us having time together.”

In Dec. 2016, Thompson had his first son — Prince Oliver — with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

Kylie Jenner Clarifies ‘High As F–k’ Snapchat

Kylie Jenner Says She’s ‘High As F–k’ In Snapchat Video

Kylie Jenner is pretty good at keeping secrets (she spent all those months denying she had lip injections), so we’re pretty sure she knows what is and isn’t the best idea to post on social media.

And yet here we are. On Wednesday, the 17-year-old took to Snapchat where she posted a number of photos and videos of herself and boyfriend Tyga on a flight, but one video is just not like the others.

“I’m high as fuck,” Jenner is heard saying before taking a bit of what appears to be a biscuit (she shared a photo of what looks like a Popeyes’ fried chicken meal earlier that day), and reacts as though it’s the best thing she’s ever tasted. “Oh my God,” she says as her eyes light up.

We’re not sure if Jenner is referring to the altitude, but The Huffington Post has reached out to her rep for comment.
