Today is definitely a nightmare for the people who run the Yahoo Finance Twitter.
The true nightmare for a social media manager is making a typo on a brand’s account but in Yahoo’s case, this went a step further. Yahoo Finance posted a tweet that included a racist slur which they quickly deleted. However, that did not stop people from screenshotting the mess that it was.

From the tweet, it seems like they wanted to say “bigger” but they ended up tweeting the racial slur. Yahoo Finance quickly deleted the tweet and issued an apology where they acknowledged the “spelling error.”
We deleted an earlier tweet due to a spelling error. We apologize for the mistake.

However, in Typical Twitter fashion, this was turned into a trending topic where people tweeted the various scenarios African Americans would be in if they had their own Navy.
