Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) holocaust controversy, first began, when users entered the query “did the holocaust actually happen”. The results fed back by the search engine, was a surprise to many.
Instead of the usual go-to explaining all the facts of the holocaust, which generally leads to the basic understanding of the holocaust, the search engine returned a white supremacy site in the norm’s steed.
Google holocaust controversy
After digging into the top result that is returned by Google, after this query is entered, it was determined that the top result, which co-incidentally “Top 10 Reasons Why The Holocaust Didn’t Happen”. It was found that the creator of the website, was created by the former boss of the Ku Klux Klan, leaving many to wonder what Google holocaust controversy, is leading to.
In turn, this website, Stormfront, is part of an American neo-nazi group. This group is known for being both anti-semantic, as well as anti-black.
The search result was originally reported by Guardian on Sunday, and despite Google’s attention being drawn to the search engine result, the top result still remains the same website. This, however, could cause rifts in knowledge, for those who are not well-versed in the history of America.
The consequences of this search result
When questioned, Google already made it clear, that the company does not intend to change the search results. This is despite the many trolls who have either taken to outrage, appealing Google to change their search results. However, there is also a white supremacist, who are in full support of the search result.
The spokesman, who was questioned on the matter, had the following to state, “We are saddened to see hate organisations still exist. The fact that hate sites appear in Search results does not mean that Google endorses these views.”
It was further indicated, despite the consequences of the Google holocaust controversy results, Google will not change search results. The spokesman also stated that the only time the tech giant will step in, is when harmful websites, such as malware, or illegal websites make top search results on their search engine.
Alphabet stock closed on Monday at $807.90, after witnessing a decline of $1.55 or 0.19%.
