Amazon Alexa Labels San Antonio 'The Worst City in the United States'


Some San Antonians who asked Amazon's smart speaker 'Alexa' for the sunrise this morning received a bizarre response, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Alexa responded by providing information on the sunrise (it was at 7:27AM) and then provides the comment: "San Antonio, the worst city in the United States of America.'

Alexa then goes on to provide population information, pointing out that San Antonio is the second largest city in Texas.

At the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, President Richard Perez said he was 'not sure' how to react to this odd development.

Amazon, replying to a question from 1200 WOAI, responded that 'it was an error that has been fixed.'
