CNN reported earlier this afternoon that Google has issued an "apology" for the results of 'Michelle Obama' image search.
For the past week if users searched 'Michelle Obama' under an image search the first image to come up was that of an altered Michelle resembling an ape.
Google seems to have pulled the image, "On Wednesday morning, the racially offensive image appeared to have been removed from any Google Image searches for "Michelle Obama."
Although the image does not come up with a direct search of Michelle Obama the image still appears when searched as 'Michelle Obama ape.'
Google safely separated themselves from the backlash, "The beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google, as well as the opinions of the general public, do not determine or impact our search results."
Although Google issued this apology they still defend the freedom of the Internet and its contents.
"Accordingly, we do not remove a page from our search results simply because its content is unpopular or because we receive complaints concerning it."
