President Trump is now everywhere, even it type in Google Images the word “Idiot”. See on Nexter.org the cases when someone messes up with Google algorithm.

“Idiot” is a new Google trend 

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

Online protestors are participating in it as well: they support it by up-voting a picture of Trump and the word “idiot” on Reddit.

Michelle Obama

In 2009, the name of the first lady “Michelle Obama” showed users a photo of her photoshopped with ape-like traits. Google apologized for it immediately and removed all the results.

Rapist 

Before the US election, someone played with Google 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 Google 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.

Jew

In 2004, the search term “Jew” started showing a hook-nosed caricature. Google’s actions were quite strange – they haven’t deleted the image, they instead took out ads next to it to explain why antisemitic imagery was on top of Google Images results.

“A site’s ranking in Google’s search results relies heavily on computer algorithms using thousands of factors to calculate a page’s relevance to a given query,” they explained. “Sometimes subtleties of language cause anomalies to appear that cannot be predicted.”

Fake news

The term “fake news”, TheDonald’s team on Reddit managed to get CNN’s logo up the results. Also, the users of Reddit tried to get a swastika to the top of Comcast image searches by posting the company’s name over and over.
