Andrew Yang upset porn fans with his criticism of Bing

Andrew Yang drew the ire of porn enthusiasts online Tuesday after taking a shot at Microsoft’s Bing search engine during the fourth Democratic debate.

While discussing major tech companies and whether they should be broken up, Yang suddenly blurted out that “there’s a reason why no one is using Bing today,” saying that competition brings out the best in Silicon Valley giants.

“Sorry Microsoft, it’s true,” the candidate said.

While it may be true that Bing fails to generate the same traffic as its fellow search engine Google, the internet was quick to reprimand Yang for failing to understand Bing’s true purpose: porn.

Bing’s ability to find porn “across a wide variety of sites” rivals all other search engines, TV writer Mike Drucker pointed out on Twitter.

But Mike isn’t alone. Countless Twitter users jumped to Bing’s defense for its unrivaled porn-finding capabilities.

Andrew Yang just tattled on himself for not watching porn by slandering Bing,” another Twitter user said.

Even Yang’s own supporters turned against him on the issue.

“I finally found something to disagree with Andrew Yang,” Twitter user @2CSense added.

But what makes Bing so great for adult content? According to one Twitter user, Bing’s safe search function “makes zero attempt to filter out porn,” thus allowing users unfettered access to specific porn-related imagery.

Commenters also used the #YangGang hashtag to make sure the candidate’s supporters knew he was in the wrong.

If you didn’t know about Bing’s porn prowess, now you do.

Who said the debates weren’t educational?
