The Twitter account for Yahoo Finance made a very, very unfortunate typo late Thursday, tweeting that president-elect Donald Trump wanted to have a “nigger navy.”
It was of course obvious that they meant to tweet that he wants a “bigger” navy, but Black Twitter had a lot of fun at their expense.

Yahoo of course eventually apologized and deleted the tweet.
We deleted an earlier tweet due to a spelling error. We apologize for the mistake.
