Facebook apologises to Xi for name translation gaffe

Jan 19, 2020 11:16 IST

Facebook on Saturday said that it was working to find out how Chinese leader Xi Jinping's name translated into an objectionable word in posts on its platform. The company has apologised for any offence caused and said that the problem had been fixed. The error came to light on the second day of Xi's visit to Myanmar. A statement about the visit published on Myanmar leader Suu Kyi's official Facebook page was littered with objectionable references to the Chinese President when translated into English from Burmese.
