The Kardashians are part of a new autocorrect that will change “Lardass” to their name.

The Internet has caught on to yet another hilarious autocorrect.

The iPhone’s autocorrect will change “Larda” or “Lardass” to “Kardashians” every time a user types it in a message or blank text field.

Lardass is defined by Dictionary.com as “a person having usually large buttocks,” which the Kardashians are known for—especially Kim Kardashian who “broke the Internet” with her butt in 2014.

The autocorrect feature on iPhones changes the word “lardass” to Kardashian.

The iPhone also has other autocorrects that are very common such as “Ducking” for “F***ing” and “LOL” instead of a simple, lowercase “lol.”

Many have pointed out that the autocorrect exists since 2013, but the Internet just discovered it. However, others say the autocorrect appeared after the iOS 9.2 update.

Regardless, the quirk might be happening because both lardass and Kardashian have “ardas” in the same order and the iPhone instanly recognizes Kardashian since it’s a more popular term. The letters “L” and “K” are also right next to each other, so it gives the OS more reason to think a user is trying to type Kardashian.

As always, the Twitter users reacted to the autocorrect and posted witty things about it.
