The YouTube Subtitles On This Unofficial Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trailer Are Racist AF

That's no way to talk about Missy Elliott...

If there's one thing we've learned in the digital age, it's that subtitles can sometimes lead to unintended hilarity. Last week it was Netflix adding Aziz Ansari standup subs to a nature doc, this week it's the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot trailer being unintentionally(?) racist as fuck.

Seriously, that's no way to talk about Missy Elliott!

Hosted on the Movieclips Trailers account, the trailer features a series of (unofficial) subtitle fuck ups that are MORE than a bit inappropriate.

For instance, this accompanies the line, "today, Kabul's first female driver, Gülbahar Yousofy, hits the road"...

Now, we've no idea whether these shocking captions were deliberate or not, but we can all agree that they're pretty much not okay?

But the subs aren't all horribly offensive... This is how they describe Elle King's "Ex's & Oh's"...

Okay, maybe this isn't the best...

Not sure we'd come to this?

Watch the whole trailer below (with subs on) to see just how weird they can get...
