London, Nov 25: Google has apologised for a racially offensive image of Michelle Obama that the search engine displays when users search for the images of the US First Lady.
The California-based Internet giant posted a text ad above the rude photo that ended up as the number-one result for Mrs Obama on its site.
The ad reads, "Sometimes our search results can be offensive. We agree.", reports the Daily Express.
Netizens clicking on the ad are taken to a letter from the company that says its results "can include disturbing content, even from innocuous queries", and adds that Google does not endorse content on these websites.
The company wrote, "We apologise if you've had an upsetting experience using Google."
