Trump Tower renamed Dump Tower on Google Maps

On Saturday, Donald Trump was the recipient of a particularly cutting prank.

Trump Tower, the President-elect’s residence and skyscraper-hotel on New York’s 5th Avenue, was given a new name on Google Maps:

Dump Tower.

People on social media quickly noticed the re-christening

But not everyone was impressed...

Google quickly noticed the prank, and changed the name back to the original.

A Google spokesperson told BuzzFeed News:

Some inappropriate names were surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused.

The identity of the person or people responsible for renaming the tower is at present unknown.

We can only imagine how Donald feels about it.
