iPhone Auto-Correct FAIL: “WhiteHouse” to “Wh*rehouse”

I was watching the White House Youth Clean Energy Economy Forum on WhiteHouse.gov/LIVE yesterday, and as I was sending a text message to my sister about the event, I was set back by my iPhone’s recommended correction:

iPhone white house to whorehouse

I laughed and clicked X, of course.

But it got past my friend, an employee of Campus Progress who was actually at the event when he shared this with his thousands of followers on Twitter AND Facebook:

iPhone autocorrection for whitehouse: whorehouse

Embarrassing, I’m sure, but hilarious.
