Google’s Android reached out to social media users and encouraged them to nominate a word starting with the letter N for the next latest version of Android’s mobile operating platform on Wednesday.
The submissions were asked by an Andriod website, they asked for “any tasty ideas that start with the letter N” for the new “Android N” operating platform. On Wednesday, the new version of operating platform was unveiled at its Google I/O developers conference.
The n-word is frequently used as a stand-in for an offensive racial and after people heard it, a strong negative reaction ranged over it.
