[PHOTOS] Here’s What Happens When You Type The ‘N-Word’ into Google Maps

Twitter user Bohmani X noticed yesterday that typing “Nigga house” into Google Maps took you someplace odd: the White House.


“The screenshot first appeared from a fellow Howard University alum in our alumni GroupMe,” Bomani Xsaid to Huffington Post. “I tested it out myself, and it started to spread rapidly in the other Howard University/DMV area GroupMe.”

Mediaite tried this out and got the same result, though depending on your location, searching “nigga house” will get you to Washington D.C.’S historically-black Howard University or a Waffle House.

Google had no real explanation, but told HuffPost it was working to fix the situation.

“Some inappropriate results are surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused,” Google said. “Our teams are working to fix this issue quickly.”

I tried it out myself, to see if this was legit, and sure enough here’s what comes up:
