Facebook translates Chinese President Xi Jinping’s name to ’Mr S***hole’

Facebook has apologized after a technical error translated Chinese President Xi Jinping’s name to ’Mr Sh*thole’ on the official page of Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The error happened when Suu Kyi in a post recounted her meeting with Mr Xi during his state visit to Myanmar. Originally written in Burmese, Facebook’s translation into English referred to Mr Xi as ’Mr Sh*thole’ six separate times

What's the mistranslation? Calling him "Mr. Shithole" has to be the single most accurate thing ever said about that authoritarian dipstick.
