LOS ANGELES --Google-owned YouTube, which has been under fire for allowing unsafe kids content to flourish on its network, apologized Monday for yet another snafu in its search results. The website BuzzFeed reported Monday that YouTube's search algorithm was autocompleting phrases like "How to have..." with phrases like "s*x with children." In a statement late Monday, Google said: "Earlier today our teams were alerted to this profoundly disturbing autocomplete result and we worked to quickly remove it as soon as we were made aware. We are investigating this matter to determine what was behind the appearance of this autocompletion."
