Yahoo Finance turned a somewhat quiet Thursday night into a teaching moment regarding what can happen when you accidentally hit “n” instead of “b” on the keyboard.
The outlet’s social media team tweeted out the following headline around 10:01 p.m. EST: “Trump wants a much nigger navy: Here’s how much it’ll cost.”
Black twitter collectively formed the #NiggerNavy and went in with memes and gif’s exposing the error. Buzzfeed News credits @JeSuisDawn with creating the hashtag.
Yahoo Finance tweeted out an apology around midnight, but the damage had already been done.
Some suggested the outlet’s error was a ploy to gain clicks while other’s just marveled at one of the first L’s of 2017.
Are we being trolled by Yahoo Finance or was it really at mistake? Sound off in the comments below.
