World’s largest video sharing website ‘Youtube’ faced a system glitch that termed the fire of Notre-Dame as 9/11 conspiracy on Monday.
On the below of the video was an odd box of text from Encyclopedia Britannica about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.YouTube, a division of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, introduced this text box feature last year to combat the spread of conspiracy theories, including those that question the 9/11 attacks but the software mistakenly labeled the cathedral fire as 9/11 plot.
Apologizing for the system glitch, one of Youtube’s spokesperson said, “We are deeply saddened by the ongoing fire at the Notre-Dame cathedral, these panels are triggered algorithmically and our systems sometimes make the wrong call. We are disabling these panels for live streams related to the fire.”
Youtube has already been criticized in the past, when a terrorist live streamed its attack in one of the mosque of New Zealand.
