Google apologizes after photo app tags black friends as 'gorillas'
MOUNTAIN VIEW/CALIFORNIA (Web Desk) - Google has apologized after its new Photos app classified two black friends as 'gorillas’, placing their photos in a special album.

The tech giant has since removed the tag from the program, saying it is "genuinely sorry" for the mistake, reported RT.

The cringeworthy mishap came into light when New York resident, Jacky Alcine was going through his pictures, when he found picture of himself with his friend in an album titled 'Gorillas'.

He immediately took to Twitter, complaining the tech giant. Alcine also asked Google, "What kind of sample image data you collected that would result in this son?"







Google engineer Yonatan Zunger responded to Alcine's tweets, admitting the"shudder" factor of the mistake and saying "this is 100% Not OK."



Zunger asked if Google could access Alcine's account to see why the problem occurred, and later said the bug had been fixed.
