I Just Entered the Worst String of Search Terms Ever into Google

I don’t want to talk about it. 

I was just trying to confirm something people were talking about on Twitter.

I really don’t want to talk about it.

But I already went this far.

Okay, here it is.

Deep breath.

Russell Simmons

Harriet Tubman

sex tape.

You can see what it’s all about here

And here.

But this exists now.

This is out there.

People will type “Harriet Tubman” into their search bars in the future.

And they will see the suggestion “sex tape.”

Someone will write about it on Wikipedia.

More likely Russell’s page than Harriet’s.

And the editors won’t scrub it within minutes.

They won’t ever scrub it.

Because it’s a fact now.

It’s history.

My Internet history.

Google will use this to cater ads to me.

To promise me happiness and fulfillment.

And someone’s product will match that niche.

There is only one escape.
