President Xi Jinping called Mr shithole on facebook
And as you would expect, a post about the visit was published on the official Facebook page of Suu Kyi which meant there was gonna be a lot of reference to Xi Jinping or rather “Mr Shithole” when translated to English. (Mehn that is so embarrassing)
Just so you know what we’re really talking about here, a local news site in it post wrote “Dinner honours president shithole.”(I know like, what the heck)
But at the same time, Google also translated the post to English and didn’t have that technical glitch. (I smell something fishy here)
According to Facebook “This should not have happened and we are taking steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again. We sincerely apologize for the offense this has caused.”😄
But after a couple of tests, it was found out that the Facebook system translated words that starts with “Xi” and “Shi” in Burmese to “shithole” in English.
