In a mysterious case, photos of Winston Churchill stopped appearing on Google search over the weekend. As many tried to look for British Prime Ministers and list of World War II leaders, images of the former UK PM were not visible on the search engine’s results.

The development left netizens baffled online, with many tagging the tech giant demanding answers. Although the company ‘fixed it’ following to outrage, people have sought a proper explaination.

As people searched with his name, a black box appeared instead of Churchill’s photo. People on social media were quick to point out that pictures of Adolf Hitler, Stalin and Mao were still displaying on the search engine

The latest episode comes after a Black Lives Matter protest in central London last weekend led to Churchill’s statue being defaced with the word “racist”.

Yep, happened for me too when I searched World War II leaders. Got pictures of 53 leaders but no pic of Churchill. https://twitter.com/sohrabahmari/status/1271986973289349120

Ha. Just tried it for myself. Are our tech overlords at Google are joining the street-level iconoclasts by defacing history on the Internet?

So now Google has officially DELETED Churchill but kept Hitler and Stalin.

Let that sink in.

Google has removed Churchill’s photo out of all the previous Prime Minister’s photos.

Utterly disturbing that such a company can have that power to censor our British history.

Shame on you @Google

Winston Churchill’s picture has been removed from the Google list of UK Prime Ministers.

This is going to far, the agenda blatant, our history is being erased before our very eyes, we need to fight back.

It shows how ridiculous our country has become that we’re even having a debate about Winston Churchill.

He was the man who defeated Hitler and now Google have removed his picture and we’ve boarded his statue up.

What the hell is going on?!

Winston Churchill, The greatest ever Briton, a war hero, the man who faced down fascism, Nazis, the greatest threat to peace the world has ever known, has had his picture removed from Google’s list of UK Prime Ministers.

Make sense yet?

Time to rise up and fight for who we are!

Just to clarify: removing a photo of Winston Churchill from Google won’t end racism.
