Wordle Removed a Word as an Answer. Here's Why
A lengthy announcement from The New York Times explained that May 9th's "Wordle" puzzle might look different for some players. "Some users may see an outdated answer that seems closely connected to a major recent news event," the statement read.
"This is entirely unintentional and a coincidence — today's original answer was loaded into Wordle last year," the statement went on to say. The word in question was "Fetus,” which would be an unfortunate choice so close to the leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion that suggested Roe v. Wade be overturned.
The New York Times maintained that "Wordle” is meant to be a release from the societal pressures of daily life. The Times continued to explain that refreshing your browser should fix the problem and deliver the new puzzle to players, but the publication acknowledged that all players might not take that step.
