Uber is under fire for sending out a tweet using the “N word,” after customer @realTheeCheney demanded that the ride-sharing refund his money for a bad experience.

According to Mashable the account that Uber responded to is a troll account that will use slang in the display name and when a company’s bot replies it uses the slang in the response.

Uber issued an apology on Twitter and said they are currently investigating how the derogatory tweet got out.
