White House Facebook page misspells ‘Americans’

Washington: The official Facebook page of the White House was subjected to number of scornful comments, as the page misspelled spelling of ‘Americans’, which was spelled ‘Amerericans’, and ironically the post was related to President Barack Obama’s new education initiative.

The White House’s social media team apparently overlooked spell check in a Facebook post on Thursday that bungled the word “Americans”.

“Earlier today, President Obama signed an Executive Order establishing the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Amerericans (sic),” the initial post said.

Facebook users quickly pointed out the misspelling of “Americans” with the mistake soon getting fixed.

“Better! Thank you for the correction!!!,” New York Daily News quoted a user, as saying.

Another person commented: “See they corrected the misspelling of Amerericans....NO SPELL CHECK IN THE White House?”

“Looks like they corrected the spelling error on the educational greatness of our own President!,” someone wrote.
