However, there are still some instances where some hackers and even regular pranksters can bypass the security system of Google Maps to include their own images.

Now, a new image went viral after some anonymous individuals claimed that it is a newly captured photo of the popular Loch Ness monster, a popular mythical creature that is claimed to be living in the lakes of Scotland.

His viral Twitter post was able to attract a lot of users in the comment section. They are asking the leaker regarding the image since they were not able to see it.

But, they were shocked after the Twitter user shared the actual photo of the claimed Loch Ness monster. Instead of seeing a giant serpent-like creature, the man shared an image of a naked guy, who seems to be in a hotel in Lago Ness, Scotland.

One of the commentators confirmed that he investigated the trending image of the selfie-taking man. He added that this is the guy's habit of taking photos of NSFW (not safe for work) in various popular places, including Disney World and an all-girl Japanese high school.

However, you can no longer see the photo since Google confirmed that the NSFW image was already taken down from the platform.
