Siri Pulls Up Image Of An Actual Dick When Asked About Trump

Maybe you’re enjoying a nice dinner with your family when the President of the United States comes up in conversation. Perhaps your family is discussing whether nightly double-fisted Big Macs takes a toll on the body, or whether California’s wildfires can be mitigated with raking (spoiler alert: the answer is no). In any event, maybe someone brings up the US president’s age, and as no one is fully sure of the number, you decide to ask Siri.

Siri, you may discover, appears to think Donald Trump is a literal human penis.

The apparent glitch was reported on Thursday by the Verge, which noted that the error may be the result of some turkey day trickster either editing Trump’s Wikipedia page or attempting to game an algorithm associated with the image Siri pulls up automatically.

One Twitter user reported the image of male genitalia was also populating on Safari when searching Trump’s name.

Gizmodo staff tried several times to ask Siri about Trump’s age and got mixed results: Sometimes we saw a dick (above), and sometimes Siri turned up an actual image of Trump.

It’s definitely not the first time somebody’s messed with a site’s algorithm involving Trump. Last year, Redditors were able to game Google to populate an image of the US president when the word “idiot” was searched.

By publication time, it looked like Apple was using Wolfram Alpha to populate the answer to the age-related query about Trump. As for whatever is or was going on with Siri? We’ve reached out to Apple and will update this post when we hear back.
