WASHINGTON (WLS) -- Google has apologized after someone hacked Google Maps, labeling the White House with a racial slur.

A specific search involving that slur and the word "house" pointed out the White House on Google Maps. Google has suspended the public edit option on Maps for now.

Some well-known Chicago locations were also been labeled in a similar way.
