Don't Search For Oreos On Google Images, You Might Get Naked Girls

Just about a week ago, a upset searcher posted in the Google Web Search Help forums that stumbled upon a naked girl when searching on Google Images. No big deal right? Well, two things:

(1) The "Strict" SafeSearch filter was on and (2) He was searching for Oreos

If you search for Oreos on Google Image search, the naked lady comes up on page two. If you change your SafeSearch filter to Strict, the highest it can go - the naked girl comes up on the first page of images!

To make things worse, Google dropped the report offensive images feature from the menu. To add on that, it was reported about a week ago, Jeff from Google replied that day saying, "I have submitted a SafeSearch removal request for this, so it should be gone shortly."

Now, a week later, the guy came back to say the image was still there and it is. I checked myself:

Oreo Cookie Porn on Google

Jeff from Google was quick to apologize for it still being there and said:

I see that the image is still showing up. Sorry about that. I'll investigate further and try to get the image removed as soon as I can.

I've checked a couple of times and it's still there, I think I'll keep checking, probably for longer next time. In fact I'm going to check again now...

bing is no better, my guess would be if they are using image recognition software notice the background is similar color and tone to her skin would be near impossible to classify it as porn with intelligent software, and the domain is probably clean either way nobody is perfect

The image does not show up if safesearch is on. If you have safesearch off you can pretty much guarantee nudity for almost any sweet snack search. Porn is king of the internet after all.
