16:58Ask Siri: Apple's Virtual Assistant Program Has a Potty Mouth

Asking Siri to define the word "mother" is simple enough, and it fetches the standard Oxford Dictionary definition, which refers to a woman in relation to her child or children, or a female animal in relation to her offspring.
It appears Siri is reading the second slang definition of "mother" from the Oxford Dictionary, points out Redditors. If you give an affirmative response, Siri responds "motherf-ker".
With Mother's Day coming up, you might be wondering what exactly it is to be a mother. But the "vulgar slang" definition is actually the fourth listed, according to our screenshot, not the second definition. Driven primarily by voice, there is no quick way for users to screen results and stop the assistants before they blurt out something private, sensitive, or inappropriate.
That being said, getting Siri to swear has turned out to be a sport for iOS users and while many have reached a dead end, a couple of users managed to do the same by just asking the definition of "Mother", which is one of the most common words we use every day.
At the International Business Times India office, we gave this a spin to see if Siri can really get so insensitive, and it did.
Interestingly, the blame for Siri's vulgar language should not be put on Apple entirely. Gadgets Now recently found out that Google's Assistant also shows up the same curse word in results when asked to define "Mother". The expletive from this particular "bug" is even laughable because of Siri's delivery.
Apple will most likely fix this soon, so Siri isn't reading out motherf*cker to kids. The Australian Siri also encountered the same issue.
