Internet users influenced ’s algorithm, so now if you decide to look up for an “idiot” in Images, you will get a lot of Trump’s pics. Probably, it began when British protestors used the Green Day song “American Idiot” as the main soundtrack for the demonstrations during Trump visit to UK.

Rapist 

Before the US election, someone played with Images too – when you searched for the word “rapist”, it brought up at least five images of Bill Clinton. Threads that tagged the 42nd president were making it to the front page of Reddit, so it’s not surprising it influenced Images algorithm.

Most of the post with Bill Clinton tagged in it included the following inscriptions: “RAPIST! RAPIST! RAPIST! RAPIST!” “Today this rapist turns 70. Happy Birthday, rapist,” and many more of the same context.
