Around 11pm EST last night, Yahoo Finance made quite the typo on what SHOULD have been “bigger navy,” resulting in a racial slur living on their Twitter account for a solid 11 minutes. Though it was then deleted and an apology was later issued (after an hour, by the way), this didn’t stop a hilarious trending topic from giving way.
Because of the sensitivity of the word, other races just looked on and laughed (some made memes about their lack of participation,) while #BlackTwitter flexed their comedic chops and made gold for hours.
