Microsoft’s search engine Bing isn’t displaying image results for the famous 1989 “tank man” photo of a Chinese protester on Friday, the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. The tech giant has attributed the ongoing issue to “accidental human error” amid claims of possible censorship.
Microsoft is “actively working to resolve this,” a company spokesperson told CNET in an emailed statement.
As of 4:30 p.m. PT, Bing continues not showing any Tiananmen Square-related image search results for “tank man” — just generic photos and images of tanks. By comparison, Google is returning results of the image.
