British artist writes "shibal" on his artwork due to Google Translate mistake

Artwork of hermit crab by British artist Gareth Davies. The artwork has 씨발 ("shibal" - fuck) written on it.

He explains that he used Google Translate

It turns out that not putting a space between Mr. Crab changes the translation of the word.
