Dump Tower? Dump Grill. Google hacked. A Limerick.

“A search for Trump Tower on Google Maps brought up an incorrect name for the President-elect’s residence. Instead, users saw the name ‘Dump Tower.’

“Users began noticing the Fifth Avenue building’s name change on the mapping service Saturday afternoon. It’s unclear when the switch occurred, but people on Twitter began tweeting about the new ‘brand identity’ around 2 p.m.

“The location pinpoint also provides the description of Trump Tower as ‘a 58-story mixed-used skyscraper.’

“A spokesperson from Google Maps told PIX11 the name change from Trump to ‘Dump’ has been fixed.

“‘Some inappropriate names were surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams immediately took action and have fixed the issue,’ the spokesperson said.”

Well, I looked up 5th Ave and E. 56 Street Sunday at about 9 p.m. and the Trump Grill has been renamed Dump Grill.


Dump Tower is fixed; Now Dump grill,

Renamed by the losers ill will.

To rename is their shame

and the pranks are quite lame

Trump won! All your screams sound so shrill!
