Facebook has changed a Spanish-to-English translation of a post from California Gov. Gavin Newsom's official governor page after its auto-translation tool changed "campesinos," a Spanish word for "farmers," to "peasants."

A comical initial translation of the post from Newsom's office read, "Equity is our priority when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines. We're focused on vaccinating our food workers, farmers, peasants and our essential workers as quickly as possible."
