Snap CEO Evan Spiegel personally paid at least $4 million to throw a New Year's Eve party for employees and guests at the L.A. Live complex in Los Angeles, featuring musicians Diplo and Drake, The Daily Beast wrote.
But there was one rule: No photos. People were encouraged to leave their phones at home, and those who brought their devices had tape placed over the cameras. The company also blocked snaps from being posted at the venue.
However that didn't stop people from removing the tape and taking pictures. Or, people took photos of the polaroids and photo booth strips Snap provided at the event and posted them online.
