SB Nation sports journalist, Natalie Weiner, was blocked by a website for creating an account. Natalie then took a snapshot of the website which shows her last name offensive. She uploaded the screenshot on social media, and surprisingly, many people joined her and said they have faced the same problem and she is not the only one.

Along with the screenshot of the website she tweeted “This is without a doubt the best thing that’s ever happened to me”. As shown in the picture, the website detected ‘offensive language’ in the last name field. As soon as Natalie posted the picture it went viral and many people expressed their emotions. There were others who shared how they changed their last name to make them website friendly.
Given below are some of the hilarious reaction to the tweet.
