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.

To be fair, "N" is right beside "B" on most keyboards — but still.
