Google apologizes for offensive image to Apple on Google Maps

This past weekend, for a brief period, a strange image can be seen on Google Maps.

Displayed in what appeared to be a remote location in Pakistan, Android’s little green robot can be seen urinating on the Apple logo when selecting the satellite image.

Although many questioned whether the joke would be one of Google’s pranks on the product, the search engine sought to deny the rumors as soon as the image made headlines on major industry blogs and websites.

A Google spokesman said that “inappropriate content was created by a user; we are working to remove it quickly ”. “The vast majority of users who edit our maps offer great contributions.”

The company also said “that it also learns from these issues” and that it is constantly improving the way it detects, prevents and deals with improper publications.
