President-elect Donald Trump’s home building in New York City, which is known as “Trump Tower,” had its name changed on Google Maps Saturday to “Dump Tower.”

According to WPIX-TV, the change was first noticed around 2 p.m. EST on Saturday when people began to tweet pictures of the change.

When users type in “Trump Tower” on Google maps, the application will still take you to 725 5th Avenue, the location of Trump’s headquarters. But instead of the correct name appearing, users see the building labeled as “Dump Tower.”

The name change has reportedly been fixed as of 9 p.m. EST, though some Google Maps users say they still see Trump Tower with its vandalized name.

More from WPIX:

The trend caught on Saturday evening with the a second Trump renaming. Trump International Hotel & Tower in Columbus Circle had also been renamed Dump International Hotel & Tower.

It isn’t immediately clear who changed the name on Google Maps or how it was done.

Since being elected president, Trump has used Trump Tower as a meeting place with his advisers, potential cabinet and administration officials, in addition to world leaders.
