(KTVU) - Google has come under fire after a new photo app tagged two black people as gorillas.
A Brooklyn computer programmer tweeted out a screenshot of the picture he had uploaded through Google Photo with the automated tag.
Google’s chief social architect took to Twitter to say “This is 100% not OK.”
Google says it has decided not to give any photos a Gorilla tag until it has worked out a “better recognition of dark skinned faces.”
In a statement, Google Spokeswoman Katie Watson said, “We’re appalled and genuinely sorry that this happened. We are taking immediate action to prevent this type of result from appearing.”
