“The Microsoft team has raised it as a high priority incident and will be working with the third party to exclude offensive text to prevent this from happening in the future,” Nydam said.
DPH was made aware of the offensive code when an Atlanta-area woman shared screen grabs of the code on her Twitter page, according to The News & Observer. The woman, whose Twitter handle is @DanieEve, was reportedly registering for a COVID-19 test on the site when she noticed the code Wednesday.
“How does this even happen??? As a confirmation cache?!,” the Twitter user wrote in a tweet, which is now deleted, and tagged the Georgia DPH directly.
