According to Reuters, in one of the news on Myanmar’s Secretary of State’s account, Aung San Suu Kyi, an automatic translation of the head of the PRC, Xi Jinping, appeared on Facebook as Mr. Shithole.

According to Facebook representatives, such a translation is associated with a technical error — the system did not find the name of Xi Jinping in the Burmese database, so it automatically selected a phrase similar in sound, which turned out to be Mr. Shithole.

Facebook has officially apologized to the Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, but they have not yet answered. Probably, Xi Jinping’s name and its normal translations have now been added to all Facebook databases.
