Michelle Obama- First Lady Michelle Obama Offensive Image is causing quite a stir on Google. Wherein Google has purchased online ads in an effort to explain to users why an offensive image of Michelle Obama is appearing, and is ranked so highly, in its Google Image search results.
The Google ad, titled “Offensive Search Results,” appears directly over the pictures of the First Lady that show up when users perform a Google Image search for “Michelle Obama.”

An explanation of our search results.
Sometimes Google search results from the Internet can include disturbing content, even from innocuous queries. We assure you that the views expressed by such sites are not in any way endorsed by Google.
Search engines are a reflection of the content and information that is available on the Internet. A site’s ranking in Google’s search results relies heavily on computer algorithms using thousands of factors to calculate a page’s relevance to a given query.
The beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google, as well as the opinions of the general public, do not determine or impact our search results. Individual citizens and public interest groups do periodically urge us to remove particular links or otherwise adjust search results. Although Google reserves the right to address such requests individually, Google views the integrity of our search results as an extremely important priority. Accordingly, we do not remove a page from our search results simply because its content is unpopular or because we receive complaints concerning it. We will, however, remove pages from our results if we believe the page (or its site) violates our Webmaster Guidelines, if we believe we are required to do so by law, or at the request of the webmaster who is responsible for the page.
We apologize if you’ve had an upsetting experience using Google. We hope you understand our position regarding offensive results.
The Google Team
The Michelle Obama Offensive Image was previously removed by Google on the grounds that the site hosting the Michelle Obama picture violated its guidelines by serving malware to visitors.
Now, however, the offensive image has been posted to another site that does not violate Google rules.
Unfortunately, there’s nothing Google can or will do about it except explain that it can’t or won’t manipulate its results. Google has taken out explanation-oriented ads similar to the one featured with the “Michelle Obama” including a similar one on Image searches for “Jew.”
Why do you think Michelle Obama Offensive Image is a news story? Offensive things has been done to people since the time the internet began, why is it any different because it’s Michelle Obama?
In my opinion, since the image was the work of an individual and was posted on a personal blog. Whether or not anyone agrees or disagrees with his/her work of art, he/she has the right to speak and express as freely like anyone else. But how about showing some respect to the First Lady?
