Guy Fieri Is 'Genocidal,' According to Wikipedia

The TV chef’s Wikipedia page got defaced in a bizarre way

The cached Wikipedia blurb states that Fieri is "a genocidal member of the U.S. Supreme Court."

Guy Fieri: TV personality, chef, restaurateur… "genocidal member of the U.S. Supreme Court"?

It appears as if the modern-day equivalent of a vandal decided to edit Fieri’s Wikipedia page, and now when you type his name into Google, the second item that comes up is a link to it, with the text, "Guy Fieri is a television personality working for Food Network, or rather, he was before he became a genocidal member of the U.S. Supreme Court; unfortunately..." visible. When you click on the actual link, the unauthorized addition goes away, but it still appears in the cached version.

Celebrities, especially ones as infamous as Fieri, are no stranger to Wikipedia-bashing, and the online encyclopedia has a whole fleet of "scrubbers" who make sure that unwarranted, unsavory additions to personal pages are taken down quickly, and they generally are (that’s the risk inherent in running a site that anyone can edit). But in this case, it looks like Google’s crawlers happened to come along at a hilariously unfortunate time.

I am pretty sure this was caused by a Homestuck fan.
