In the business of IT we call something like this an easter egg. A secret message or screen buried in an application. Typically, easter eggs are used to display the credits for the development team or to display a humorous message. This is seriously not funny.
I couldn’t believe it when I read it. As much as it hurt my heart I had to try it for myself. I feel dirty even typing that foul word. But, alas there it is and it is true. Google needs to get on this and fix it. This is appalling!!!
Technology giant Google is in deep trouble. It is being accused of racism. (accused did someone say accused… NO accusation here… this is RACIST.) Not just racism, but racism against the current occupant of The White House.
Netizens who try to do a Google search using the terms ‘N*gga House’ will be directed to a famous address on Pennsylvania Avenue in the nation’s capital.
The map, however, doesn’t show the Obama residence for other variations of the racial term, indicating that whoever is behind this non-hilarious prank meant to target the specific term.
“Some inappropriate results are surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused,” a Google spokesperson told the U.S. News. “Our teams are working to fix this issue quickly.”
Well I should hope so.
