Google photo apps is under fire after a glitch in the app called African Americans gorillas.
According to BBC, the app that automatically tags uploaded pictures by it’s own software, labeled a black couple as gorillas. The issue caught the attention of a New York based software developer who was one of the people in the photo who was called a gorilla.
Google Executive Yonathan Zunger released a statement about the error saying that it was not okay for a glitch like that to happen and that it will never happen again. Zunger continued to say that Google was working on long term fixes so that words can be more careful of words for people in photos. According to reports, this is not the first time Google has been under water for one of its apps.
