You cannot beat social media and they managed to home in on a mistake in Google’s supreme search engine. Folks were taken aback when they noticed that Luther Vandross’s image had been replaced with that of Master P, the media mogul we know and love. The internet jumped on that digital a###, wasting no time in bashing Google for this blunder. This is a big blunder!
The incident occurred when people searched for Luther Vandross on Google, only to be greeted by a picture of Master P. So, let me explain why this is not cool.
Luther Vandross is an iconic R&B singer known for his soulful voice and heartfelt ballads and, at times, dance grooves. He was one of “those,” managing to captivate audiences worldwide with his music. He tragically passed away in 2005 at the young age of 54 but that does not stop us from celebrating his legacy on a regular.
Truth be told, Master P is also one of “those,” a media mogul that is now selling cereal with Snoop! With his entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen, he has made significant strides in Music and beyond. He is a successful entrepreneur in various other ventures.
The audacity of Google to make such a glaring mistake. This is more than a disappointment, and is smells like bias! They better do a better job in honoring and preserving the legacies of influential artists like Luther Vandross.
Fortunately, Google promptly rectified the error, ensuring that Luther Vandross’ image once again graces the search results, as it rightly should. Although the mix-up between Vandross and Master P caught social media users by surprise, it serves as a reminder of the need for precision and attention to detail, especially for our kings and queens.
