Google has fixed Trump Tower's name after an unknown person renamed the midtown Manhattan building on Google Maps. A search for 'Trump Tower' brought up 'Dump Tower'.

Trump International Hotel & Tower in Columbus Circle has also been renamed, changing the name to Dump International Hotel &Tower. The location pinpoint also provides the description of Trump Tower as a "58 storey, mixed used skyscraper."

According to New York Times, users of the mapping service started noticing the new name change for the Fifth Avenue building on Saturday. While it is unclear when the switch took place, social media report and tweeting began around 2 p.m

Google stated that they regularly updates their maps, although the time it takes to update and refresh location names varies as map data is aggregated from third party providers, user contributions and public sources which helps to create a comprehensive and updated map at all times.

However, occasional inaccuracies such as the instant case, is not completely ruled out and Google must then make correction and fix any incorrect name or information.

A Google spokesperson told PIX11 that the misrepresentation has been fixed and the company has changed the name back to Trump Tower.

 "Some inappropriate names were surfacing in Google Maps that should not be and we apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams took immediate action and have fixed the issue."

Trump is yet to comment on the name changing incident. He has been using Trump Tower as his transition headquarters.

It is recommended that Google Map boost it system and services. There have been a number of reported incidents involving the app where all sorts of pranks and racist phrases have been used. The Culprits are still unknown and the big question remains "who is responsible?"
