Google did not pee all over Apple

screen-shot-2015-04-24-at-121719Over the weekend an addition appeared on Google Maps to show Android peeing on its biggest rival in Pakistan, near the city of Rawalpindi. As you could imagine, Google did not mastermind the Android mascot’s depiction.

Google has now apologised for the gaffe in a statement to the Washington Post, saying: “We’re sorry for this inappropriate user-created content; we’re working to remove it quickly.

“We also learn from these issues, and we’re constantly improving how we detect, prevent, and handle bad edits.”

The Android mascot has been removed from the location. A Map Maker account holder was responsible for the sly attack, which was submitted without being reviewed. An investigation will likely follow.
