French cinema site showed Black Panther ads with the title “Planet of the Apes: Supremacy”

POA

The French cinema information and booking site Allocine.fr has been showing ads for the film Black Panther under the name La Planète des singes : Suprématie (Planet of the Apes: Supremacy).

Blacks immediately started to bombard Allociné with complaints about it. The company responded that it was not responsible because these choices were made independently by the Google algorithm. When Google investigated, it turned out that the movie had been google-bombed. Many mischievous searches and links had associated “Black Panther” with the phrase “Planet of the Apes – Supremacy”.

Google has now corrected the “problem”.
