Of new York to be called ‘Jewtropolis’ in the map hack


The City of new York has been renamed to “Jewtropolis” in the mapping software used by the social media site Snapchat, and others.

The company called it an “act of vandalism” and said it was working with its partner Mapbox to “get this fixed immediately”.

The issue was brought to Snapchat’s attention of a user in question, with many expressing disgust.

Screenshots on social media appeared to show other apps had also been affected.
