Today's word was supposed to be "lynch"

According to the original list created by Josh Wardle, the word for today was supposed to be "lynch." However, a few words were removed from the list after the game was acquired by the New York Times.

"Lynch" was one of the words removed along with "agora," "pupal," "fibre," "slave," and "wench." According to NYT spokesperson Jordan Cohen, the news portal decided to remove words they felt were confusing or offensive. His statement read:

"We are updating the word list over time to remove obscure words to keep the puzzle accessible to more people, as well as insensitive or offensive words."

The decision makes sense if you think about the demographics and numbers of players Wordle has. NYT also made the game accessible to non-English speakers by launching it in local languages in different countries.
