Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 30, 2018

Snapchat has apologised for a major gaffe that labelled New York City "Jewtropolis" on Snap Maps, leading users to blast it as "racist". But the blunder – which is impacting the, iOS, Android, and desktop versions of the platform – still hasn't been fixed. "Idk, doesn't "Jewtropolis" strike you as a little racist, @Snap ?" tweeted user @itsnathannow to the official Twitter account of Snapchat's parent company. The Snapchat support account blamed the blunder on an apparent hack of Mapbox, the third-party mapping software that powers Snap Maps and other GPS maps like it.

Funny how the DR Left Racists referenced in #1 are staying away from this thread...Maybe SnoofIndy will come in with a "Ruckustown" deflection.

I really don't get your point. It's stupid and desperate. Enjoy your time well spent here on the site.
