Facebook blamed a technical glitch Saturday after the site mistranslated Burmese-to-English posts about Chinese President Xi Jinping during his visit to Myanmar.
Xi’s name appeared in the English translation as “Mr. S—hole,” according to Agence France-Presse.
“We fixed the technical issue that caused incorrect translations from Burmese to English on Facebook,” a spokesman for the social networking giant said, according to AFP. “This should not have happened and we are taking steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again. We sincerely apologize for the offense it has caused.” More
