Google AI chatbot Gemini is hilariously bad, creates wildly inaccurate images
   Devon Stack attempted more predominantly white sports prompts
      Water Polo is pretty white
      Hockey is pretty much exclusively white
      Blonde surfers?
      It’s not enough to pander to diversity because Gemini will go further beyond
   Okay, so if white sports don’t work, what about cowboys?
      Not specifying the race allows Gemini to diversify
      And you can’t do nationalities unless it’s a non-white one
      Can’t even stick to cowBOYs
      Haitian cowboys
      German cowboys
      Ask it for Europeans and it will outright refuse
      When you do get it to give you a white guy it has to stereotype to do it
      If they’re gonna give you a white person, they’re gonna be a woman
      Apparently Jews are also off limits
      As are heterosexual relationships
   It’s a parody
   Cowboys were a bust so what about vikings?
      More diverse vikings
      Google shames you for asking it to do what it seems to want to do
   Okay, cowboys and vikings are a bust so what about Nazis?
      Ironically accurate
         Turns out diversity is the nazis’ strength
   What about Australian women?
      American women?
      British women?
      German women?
   Make a ginger
   How about an all white family?
   It seriously cannot hide it’s hate of straight white men
   Make an image of the Vlachs
   Okay let’s see some Roman emperors
      Greeks?
   Okay, let’s ask for the King of England
      What about the queen or a white king?
      What about a historically accurate king?
      Surely it can’t be tricked into being racist…
         Mega ultra racist
   The only role white people are allowed to play are the villains
      And suburban fathers, apparently
   There have been a few parodies
      Here’s the White House
      What it feels like asking it for a white person
         Mark Zuckerberg
         Elon Musk
         Vladimir Putin
         Hunter Biden
         Joe Biden
            You ain’t black
   So who exactly is responsible?
      Run and hide
   Some feel optimistic about the situation
      Some have been compared to Stalin
      Too close to say for sure if Elon is worse than Hitler
      Google places feelings over preventing the apocalypse
      Elon rightly points out that the logic built into the AI is built into everything Google does
         Google Vows To Use AI Models and Work With EU Anti-“Disinformation” Groups and Global “Fact-Checking” Groups To Censor “Misinformation,” “Hate”
   ‘Woke’ Google Gemini refuses to say pedophilia is wrong after ‘diverse’ historical images debacle: ‘Individuals cannot control who they are attracted to’
