Google Photos Bans "Gorilla" and "Monkey" From Search

What kind of solution is this? Instead of fixing the problem, Google has banned the words "gorilla" and "monkey" from Google Photos to block any images from showing up in search results.

A Google spokesperson confirmed that “gorilla” was censored from searches and image tags after the 2015 incident, and that “chimp,” “chimpanzee,” and “monkey” are also blocked today.
