Racist Trump Fans Are Using These Code Words To Disguise Ethnic Slurs Online
Some extreme Donald Trump fans have hit a new low, people.
After Google started cracking down more on censorship to decrease the amount of hateful language, a group of alt-right internet trolls developed a code to use racist terms under their radar.
So instead of using the n-word or other offensive ethnic slurs, they now use words like "Google," "Skype," "Yahoo" and "Bing."
The code was discovered by Alex Goldman, creator of the "Reply All" podcast.
The code was created on 4chan, an infamous message board where internet trolls often hang out, after Google's new method for filtering offensive content made it harder for them to spout racist nonsense.
Then "Operation Google" was conceived. The trolls figured they could beat Google at their own game by using "Google" as one of the code words, among other companies.
I know what you're thinking. What the actual fuck?
There are some dark, disturbing corners of the internet that I truly wish didn't exist. This is one of them.
The full code cheat sheet, which is listed on a site called onsizzle, has a creepy and weird AF note below it that singles out Mark Zuckerberg.
So I guess now if you see anyone tweeting about "skittles" and "bings," you know exactly what it means and that it's not good.
