For many players, they received the word STOVE. However, a handful of people ended up with the last word, HARRY.
The Merriam-Webster the dictionary defines harry such as “make a plundering or destructive raid” or “force advance by harassing”.
Several players took to social media to try to find out what happened.
“Does anyone else have harry by their wordle? None of my friends have it and I’m freaking out,” wrote a Twitter user who goes by @teegs1D.
Why are there two responses from Wordle?
In a statement to USA TODAY, The New York Times confirmed Wednesday’s Wordle had two answers.
“In an effort to make the puzzle more accessible, we’re reviewing solutions and removing obscure or potentially insensitive words over time,” Jordan Cohen, executive director of communications for The New York Times, said in the statement.
Cohen said players should update the website where they play Wordle to make sure it’s in sync with the updated version.
