Miranda Kerr Is ‘Appalled’ That Facebook Is Copying Snapchat

Here are just a few features which Facebook and Instagram (which is owned by Mark Zuckerberg) have ‘borrowed’ from Snapchat:

In a recent chat with Richard Godwin of The Sunday Times, Kerr ripped into Facebook for lacking innovation and fresh ideas:

I cannot STAND Facebook,” she volunteers. She is not on Facebook itself, but she does have ten million followers on Instagram, which is owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s company. Instagram recently introduced a range of Snapchat-esque features, which has drawn out her protective streak.

Can they not be innovative? Do they have to steal all of my partner’s ideas? I’m so appalled by that . . . When you directly copy someone, that’s not innovation.” And then a sudden look of panic crosses her face. “Do I get to approve this interview? Crystal!” She admonishes her publicist who long ago drifted out of the conversation. “Oh I don’t even care. It’s a disgrace. How do they sleep at night?”

You’re looking at Snapchat’s PR girl right here,” says Crystal, finally tuning into the conversation.
