Microsoft apologises for perceived racial slur in Xbox email

Microsoft has apologised for a perceived racial slur in its latest Dead Rising 4 promotional email.

The email contained zombies singing Christmas Carols, and the email had the subject line “NNNNGGGHHHAAAA”, reports Kotaku.

It’s clear that the subject was meant to convey the sound a zombie makes, however several gamers pointed out that when saying the word out loud, it sounded like a racial slur.

It was simply a genuine mistake, but credit to Microsoft for acting so quickly.
