After becoming President-elect, Donald Trump has been in the middle of the media's roasting ground. On top of that, Trump has millions on Internet trolls targeting him every day. However, it is unusual for a company like Google to put their whimsical touch of humor on the controversial president-elect.

Though it is not confirmed, someone has edited the Trump Tower's name in Google maps. According to Cosmopolitan, someone might have hacked into Google maps and changed the tower's name to "Dump Tower."

"Well, I guess it's just called Dump Tower now. Honestly, I can't even remember what the original name was at this point. Must not have been catchy. But good ol' Dump Tower really has a ring to it - I think it's gonna stick!" wrote Laura Beck from Cosmo.

After users have been alerted of this radical change, the post has begun circulating on social media. Though many users wanted it to say that way, Google has been alerted of the hack and has corrected it immediately.

Donald Trump has had local and international trolls. Since he has been very vocal about his hatred on the Muslim community, the Arabic nation has reverted back.

A billboard was posted in Michigan written in Arabic. The only English words that can be read in the black and white billboard were "Donald Trump" and "trumpisscared.org."

The billboard's message translation reads as, "Donald Trump. He can't read this, but he's afraid of it."

The witty minds behind the billboard is the Nuisance Committee super PAC, the group founded by the creator of Cards Against Humanity.

"We intentionally did not put the translation on the board because I like the idea of people who do not speak Arabic have to ask their friends who do speak Arabic for them to translate the board for them," Melissa Harris, spokeswoman for the group, told WWJ Newsradio 950.

This was not the first time the Arabic-speaking community turned their message into art. Back in August, a tote bag with Arabic message was captured in a Berlin metro.

The note reads," This text has no other purpose than to terrify those who are afraid of the Arabic language." Produced by Rock Paper Scissors, the graphic design studio aims to open the dialogue on Arabic-speaking communities.

As Trump continues to move his regime forward, the trolls are definitely ready to defeat the odds.
