Yahoo Financial News Uses The “N” Word

Yahoo Financial News division reported that it accidentally used a racial epithet by tweeting news of the cost of President-elect Donald Trump’s plans to increase the size of the US Navy.

The original headline in Yahoo Finance’s story was “Trump wants a bigger Navy: here’s how much it will cost.” However, when he sent the tweet on Thursday, the word “bigger” had an ‘n’ as the first letter instead of a ‘b’. The word is an insult to black people.

The tweet with the errata was deleted and Yahoo Finance tweeted an apology, stressing that it was a typo.

The company did not respond to a request for further comments from CTN News.

Yahoo’s error quickly became a trend on Twitter.
