Unhappy voter changes name of “Trump Tower” on Google Maps

Unhappy voter changes name of “Trump Tower” on Google Maps

Sounds to me as if someone hacked Google Maps and changed the name of Trump Tower to Dump Tower. Not very original and definitely sounds like a Leftist. Google has since apologized and fixed the issue, but they never did say what happened. It happened yesterday and Twitter started going off about it around 2 pm.

Even after Google corrected that issue, a second incident arose yesterday evening. A second Trump renaming was noticed… Trump International Hotel & Tower in Columbus Circle had also been renamed Dump International Hotel & Tower. Someone lacks serious imagination here. I just tried it and it looks like it was fixed, but it sure would be nice to know who the scum is that did that.


From Pix 11:

Google has fixed Trump Tower’s name after an unknown person changed the midtown building’s label on Google Maps for several hours on Saturday.

A search for Trump Tower on Google Maps brought up an incorrect name for the President-elect’s residence. Instead, users saw the name “Dump Tower.”

Users began noticing the Fifth Avenue building’s name change on the mapping service Saturday afternoon. It’s unclear when the switch occurred, but people on Twitter began tweeting about the new “brand identity” around 2 p.m.

The location pinpoint also provides the description of Trump Tower as “a 58-story mixed-used skyscraper.”

A spokesperson from Google Maps told PIX11 the name change from Trump to “Dump” has been fixed.

“Some inappropriate names were surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams immediately took action and have fixed the issue,” the spokesperson said.

The media seems to be covering this as a ha ha… but I don’t think it is funny. It is disrespectful. Considering how in the tank Google was for Hillary Clinton, color me suspicious. There should be consequences for vandals and hackers doing something like this.

This same cyber vandal also transliterated the skyscraper’s title in Russian Cyrillic at another angle, possibly alluding to Trump’s alleged ties to Russia during his White House campaign.

I doubt that Trump will even bother to address these childish antics. He’s got a nation to run now, so potty humor is a little low on his list. Since being elected president, Donald Trump has used Trump Tower as a meeting place with his advisers, potential cabinet and administration officials, in addition to world leaders. So, let’s hope that something like this is taken seriously by the Secret Service.
