A Yahoo Twitter account had an extremely unfortunate typo Thursday night.
Yahoo Finance posted a tweet just after 11 p.m. that was later deleted because it included a racial slur.
"Trump wants a much n***** Navy. Here's how much it'll cost," the tweet said. It was later taken down, but as with just about anything else on the internet, nothing can ever be truly deleted.
Yahoo Finance later apologized for its "spelling error."

But as some Twitter users pointed out, there are "spelling errors" — and then there's this.
.@YahooFinance “speling error” is a spelling error. Yours was something else.— Dave Levitan (@Dave Levitan) 1483679956.0
@KyleNeubeck does that really get to be filed under "spelling error"? At LEAST throw an "unfortunate" in front of that.— Spiced Seltzer (@Spiced Seltzer) 1483679536.0
@KyleNeubeck misspelling rhyme "ryhme" is a spelling error. That is..... that's something else.— Spiced Seltzer (@Spiced Seltzer) 1483679660.0
To be fair, "N" is right beside "B" on most keyboards — but still.
