Google Images takes Donald Trump for an ‘Idiot’
Internet users were shocked to see pictures of Trump when they looked for an image for the word, ‘idiot’ on the search engine.
The search results have reportedly been triggered by a Reddit post which contained an image of Trump and the word ‘idiot’. The post was shared by a group of online activists who took out to manipulate Google’s algorithm into linking the word with images of the US president, in order to express their discontentment against Trump’s policies and decisions.
According to The Guardian, the attack is a result of a campaign started by online activists who are unhappy with the president's somewhat controversial policies.
Once this was upvoted and links were published to other sites, Google’s algorithm began to link the two and show the President’s picture whenever someone searched for ‘idiot’.
Although the algorithm is always being reworked, the article reads states “it only makes the search engine more useful and not more culturally sensitive”.
