The issue on Google Maps giving "racist-inclined" search results had somehow kept netizens busy sharing their own views and comments on the seemingly mistaken reference given to the White House. The screenshot of the incidence was even posted on Twitter wherein the user said that it appeared after typing the words n**** house on the search box. 

There's no information yet on who could be responsible for creating the search. Moreover, Google hasn't released an official statement just yet to tackle the issue.

It should be noted that earlier this month, Google decided to suspend its Map Maker tool after finding out that it has been filled with some vandalized content.

"We have been experiencing escalated attacks to spam Google Maps over the past few months," said Pavirthra Kanakarajan, Map Maker team member. "As a consequence, we suspended auto-approval and user moderation across the globe. The most recent incident was particularly troubling and unfortunate - a strong user in our community chose to go and create a large scale prank on the map."

Another example is when Google Maps showed a business listing for a snowboard shop with the location that also leads to the White House. It probably doesn't sound like a big thing knowing how Pennsylvania Avenue can have a long stretch. However, if the business establishment carries the name "Edward's Snow Den" and the location indicates the exact address of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that's when the problem begins.

Interestingly, the location was given five reviews wherein one of them even described Edward's Snow Den with the words "great source of classified information."

"That wasn't a Map Maker issue but rather a problem with how Google deals with local listings," said Kanakarajan.

A few weeks after that incident, an Android logo had been spotted which appeared to be peeing on an Apple logo. The images appeared in Google Maps near the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi.

Bomani Buckhalter, the Twitter user who posted the screenshot of the glitch, said that the screenshot first appeared from a fellow alum in Howard University.

"It is location based, so [for] some of the students that are not currently in D.C., the search result was different. However, even if you're not in D.C., 'nigga house Washington D.C.' shows the same result," added Buckhalter.

One Twitter user tried to find out the veracity of Buckhalter's claim on the issue being location based and said that in his case, he got a different result. According to the user, the White House and Waffle House came up when he did the search himself.

However, the same White House result can still be achieved in some searches. Take a look at the screenshot shown.
