Offensive Words Removed from ‘Wordle’

Less than two months after The New York Times acquired Wordle, it’s making changes to the popular online game.

The news agency has revealed a bunch of words it’s deemed offensive, the Times has announced. Among the words that have been the heave-ho are “b*tch,” “wh*re” and “sl*ts,” officials have revealed. That means if a player guesses one of the offensive words, it won’t be allowed and the player will have to take another guess.

“Offensive words will always be omitted from consideration,” a Times rep says. “As we have just started Wordle’s transition to the Times website, we are still in the process of removing those words from the game play.”

If a word is in the dictionary, should it be allowed in Wordle?
