Snapchat’s SnapMap feature appeared to label New York City as “Jewtropolis” on the social platform Thursday morning. The app’s tech-support team told users on Twitter that it uses third-party mapping data that is “subject to vandalism.” Snapchat uses data from a service called Mapbox, whose other clients include Citibike, Zillow, Jump Bikes, and StreetEasy. A similar incident occurred earlier this month, and a user called MedwedianPresident was accused of changing the city’s name then. The user’s history shows they have a habit of changing street names to “Donald Trump Avenue,” “Adolf Hitler Boulevard,” and “Fuck Road.” Snapchat and Mapbox did not immediately return BuzzFeed’s request for comment.
