siri swearsWho would have thought that Apple’s voice assistant app known as Siri would actually launch a verbal tirade against the user – a 12-year old boy in this case, with obscenities that would turn even the white iPhone 4S red with shame after its outburst against Charlie Le Quesne after he asked Siri what the world’s population is. Charlie decided to have a go at a demo handset of the iPhone 4S at a Tesco store in the UK, where he proceeded to ask Siri, “How many people are there in the world?”.

Siri, relying on a natural language user interface to answer questions, managed to conjure up this rather surprising response, “I’m not sure what you said there, Shut The F**k Up, You Ugly T***.” Needless to say, Charlie’s mom was horrified and informed The Sun about it. The only reason that would happen is pranksters had had a go with the iPhone 4S’ settings, changing the name of the owner into the vulgarities that you just read, so that whenever it addresses the phone’s user by name, all those four-letter words would spew out.
