Wall Street Journal misspells Sunder Pichai’s name

Sundar Pichai is all over the news once again as he took the reins of Google’s parent company Alphabet as the Chief Executive. On Wednesday, the whole world run this as their headlines but Wall Street Journal especially attracted many eyeballs as they misspelled his name as Sundar ‘Pinchai’. On their front page of December 4th, the New York-based daily newspaper misspelled Sundar Pichai's last name and gave rise to a storm of jokes and memes. The text read, "Page and Brin hand over management of search-giant's parent, Alphabet, to Pinchai," under the headline "Google's Founders Give Up Top Jobs".

Twitter users were quick to notice this blunder and mocked WSJ for the typo. While some called it "shameful" and "disrespectful", others laughed it out in good humour. One Twitter user even dug out an article from 2014 in which the Wall Street Journal has made the same mistake. They had misspelled the CEO’s name as Pinchai. Check out the reactions here-

For the unversed, Mr Pichai took charge as CEO of Alphabet on Tuesday after co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin stepped down from its active management.
