Yahoo accidentally tweeted a racist slur and Twitter is dragging them

Yahoo accidentally tweeted a racist slur and Twitter is dragging them. Just when you thought The Washington Post Express won the award for the biggest mess-up of the month, Yahoo Finance came like a wrecking ball to crash the party. While tweeting a link to a story on President-elect Donald Trump's plans to enlarge America's navy, Yahoo's financial service misspelled bigger with an "n." The racial slur gained more than 1,000 retweets before being deleted, almost one hour after it was shared. The account published an apology shortly after, saying it was a "mistake": We deleted an earlier tweet due to a spelling error. We apologize for the mistake. — Yahoo Finance (@YahooFinance) January 6, 2017 As expected, people on Twitter had a lot to say about it.
