Yahoo Deletes Tweet That Included Racial Slur

SUNNYVALE (CBS / AP) – Yahoo Finance says it accidentally tweeted out a racial epithet when promoting a story about the cost of President-elect Donald Trump’s plans to increase the size of the U.S. Navy.

The headline for the story on Yahoo Finance is, “Trump Wants a Much Bigger Navy: Here’s How Much It’ll Cost.” But when it was tweeted Thursday, the word “bigger” had an `n’ as its first letter instead of a `b.’

The tweet was deleted and Yahoo Finance tweeted an apology, chalking up the mishap to a spelling error.

The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment from The Associated Press.

Yahoo’s mistake quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.

  1. First of all that is a funny funny tweet. Secondly, you cannot expect much from the degenerates who work at Yahoo! It is a miracle those losers can wipe their own shhitholes.
