Google Maps shock as naked man with unblurred privates appears on Street View
EAGLE-EYED netizens on Tuesday spotted a very rude photo that was visible on Google Maps.
In a forum post, a Reddit user shared the image, which showed a man standing completely naked holding a teacup in what looked like a hotel room.
The cheeky chap was facing the camera with his willy on show and appeared to be waving nonchalantly to the viewer. It has since been removed from Maps.
Reddit user "Traditional-Island-6" shared the x-rated snap to the popular r/GoogleMaps forum.
The explicit snap was available to view in Street View in an area north of Beijing, China.
Street View is a tool on Google Maps that provides interactive panoramas from positions along many streets in the world.
While Google produces most of the imagery itself, the firm also allows users to contribute their own photos to its street-level image galleries.
It appears that someone managed to sneak the silly snap past Google's filters and onto Maps.

Google bans nudity from its digital map services, and typically censors or removes indecent photos that make it onto Maps.
After The Sun contacted Google about the image, it was removed from Maps. Google declined a request for comment.
On Reddit, users reacted in shock and delight to the obscene discovery.
One commenter wrote: "Man's got to have a hobby".
Another wrote: "That's absurd dude".
It's far from the first bizarre discovery made on Google's digital map service.
Last month, users spotted a $2billion B-2 stealth bomber as it soared over farmland in the United States.
Satellite imagery available on the digital map service has provided a rare birds-eye view of one of the angular aircraft above rural Missouri.
Eagle-eyed Reddit user "Hippowned" unearthed the once-in-a-lifetime shot and shared it to the site's popular r/Damnthatsinteresting forum.
The image is slightly blurry, but viewers can clearly make out the bomber's W-shaped wing design and famous "hawk's beak" nose.
That shape means there are very few leading edges for radar to reflect from, helping it to fly incognito in enemy airspace.
The aircraft's twin engine exhaust channels are also visible towards the rear, as well as its jet-black windscreen.
