The hackers, having exploited a vulnerability they identified in mapping data, proceeded to the racist renaming of New York to "Jewtropolis," the City of Hebrews.

In a statement by Snap, the company behind Snapchat called it a vandalism and "extremely insulting" act while at the same time asserting that, along with its Mapbox partners, they worked fast to fix the issue.

Mapbox condemned the incident and called it "hate speech". At the same time, he stressed that the issue was solved "within one hour" as the technicians removed the name given by the hackers in the city, while he said further efforts were made for city denominations by villains, but they did not succeed. The company then explained that it takes more than 7,000 changes to the map software that its technicians are working on, and concludes that New York's racist emplacement is partly due to "human error".

Images from users on social networks confirm that other apps have been affected by hackers. Snap has publicly thanked the hacking user for communicating directly with Snapchat support on Twitter. Then in a message he had with journalists pointed out that "this vandalism in the maps of application is extremely insulting and contrasts our values. We would like to apologize to all members of the community who saw him. "
