FACEBOOK APOLOGISES FOR CALLING CHINESE LEADER “MR. SHITHOLE”

OOPS, THE BLUNDER

Reportedly due to a technical error, Facebook translated Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s name as “Mr. Shithole”… The error was noticed when the official page of Myanmar’s state counsellor posted updates on the official visit of Xi in January… The post appeared in Burmese, and journalists were the first to highlight the wrong translation of Xi’s name on Facebook. It took over 24 hours before the error was corrected, and Facebook issued an official apology, after temporarily disabling the translation of Burmese to English posts… Oops.
