It used to be that you would want to be associated with comedic icon Bill Cosby. Especially if you were a black comedian. But nowadays that’s not exactly the case.
Kevin Hart sent Google a nice tweet Thursday, pleading for the search engine to remove Hart’s photo from a Google search of “Bill Cosby’s net worth” or some iteration of that.
No word on how the mixup occurred and whether it was another example of mainstream engines mistaking black celebrities’ identities. As of press time, a Google search for Cosby’s net worth rendered Cosby’s photo, so it looks like the glitch is fixed.
No doubt Hart is ecstatic.
