A day after the Supreme Court handed its decision on Marcos’ burial, Libingan ng mga Bayani at Isang Magnanakaw appeared on Google Maps.
Enraged Filipinos took their anger out in user-generated Google Maps when the highest court in the country allowed the Philippine tyrant Ferdinand Marcos to be buried at the “Libingan ng mga Bayani” or Heroes’ Memorial where great statesmen and honorable members of the military were buried.
Names of locations in Google Maps are user-generated. Recent name changes are not sanctioned by tech giant Google.
"Some inappropriate results are surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams are working to fix this issue quickly," Google told ABS-CBN News via email.
