The apparent hack job was spotted by social media users on Monday, with conservative author Ann Coulter posting a screenshot of the Nazi symbol to Twitter and speculating that Wikipedia had been “hacked.”

Other users reported the same issue when searching for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, US President Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Uh… anyone else google Justin Trudeau this morning and when you clicked on the Wikipedia link it was just a giant swastika? And then when you went back and tried again it was normal? WTF Wikipedia??? pic.twitter.com/FvUjvRy5jf
