Google, the search engine giant, ignited a wave of laughter on Friday after one of the Twitter members noted that the picture it presented on the search entry for Kim Jong-un's sister Kim Yo-jong, was in fact a hilarious photo-shopped image of the North Korean leader.
At the time of writing this article, Google still showed the same picture as the sister of the North Korean dictator.
The error has now been noticed by many people online and has even gained the attention of mainstream media outlets with famous British daily Telegraph rushing in to devote an entire online page for reporting on the faux pas.
The paper criticised the "glitchy algorithm" of the search engine giant.
"She's the spitting image of the North Korean dictator – bar the smoky eyes, dark nail polish, pale pink blusher and a carefully coiffed up-do," joked Rachel Jones, the social media content editor for the newspaper.
This error has gained traction on a day another report by South Korean Yonhap news agency is going viral that Kim Jong-un's sister has married the son of a key official. The news might trigger more searches for Kim Yo-jong prompting many others to notice the blunder.
The gaffe was first noted by a Twitter member, Alistair Coleman:
No Google, that's not a picture of Kim Jong Un's sister pic.twitter.com/KjGD8TmMPI

Both Kim Jong-un, 31, and his 27-year-old sister were born to Ko Yong-hui, known as the fourth wife of late leader Kim Jong-il, the Yonhap News agency notes.
They attended the same boarding school in Switzerland. Kim Jong-un also has a half-brother and three half-sisters.
