Yahoo Finance’s social media team tweeted out the following headline around 10:01 p.m. EST: “Trump wants a much nigger navy: Here’s how much it’ll cost.”
Black twitter collectively formed the #NiggerNavy and went in with memes and gifs exposing the error. Buzzfeed News credits @JeSuisDawn with creating the hashtag.
Yahoo Finance tweeted out an apology around midnight, but the damage had already been done.
