Social media is lighting up due to a post by a Howard University alum who noticed when you type “Nigga House” into Google Maps, the result is the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
According to the Huffington Post, the screenshot was first posted on GroupMe and later tweeted by Bomani Buckhalter, a Howard University alumni.
Howard is located in Washington, DC and is an historically all-black university.
“It is location based, so [for] some of the students that are not currently in D.C., the search result was different. However, even if you’re not in D.C., ‘nigga house Washington D.C.’ shows the same result,” Buckhalter told the HuffPost.
The HuffPost noted dropping the “a” and spelling the racial slur with an “er” yields the same result.
The Daily Caller contacted Google regarding the racist and bizarre result. “Some inappropriate results are surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams are working to fix this issue quickly.”
As of the writing of this article, the issue had not been corrected.
