Erroneous Ellipses

So, for like a week, on the mobile site, I've been experiencing ellipses where a word comes close to the forum's screen boundary.
For instance the below post:
Sleep wrote: »
Now if you come to me with a project we've never discussed that needs to be finished before the end of the week you brought it too me... it goes to the bottom of the list, and if you try to tell your boss its my fault... I'm just gonna throw you straight under the bus for not properly communicating with the necessary parties in the planning stages. That's a managerial fuck up, not a QA fuck up. Trying to fast track it, and resultantly missing defects would be a QA fuck up.

Has "never" replaced with "nev..."
This is in v68 of Chrome

    It seems like it only cuts off words that are close to fitting in the line too.
    Otherwise it continues the post on the next line.

    This sounds like some some weird dumb chrome thing, tbh. I'll take a look though.

    This just happened to me.

    Here's the post:

    Portrait mode, with ellipses:

    Landscape mode, no ellipses:

    I am also using Chrome v68 on Android.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    I thought it was just me! Android, latest version of Chrome on the mobile site.

    Hah, I thought people were just.. putting "..." instead of letters sometimes. I could always figure out the word, but I was wondering if I was missing some new meme

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    Fwiw, I never noticed this when the thread was made, but it's been happening to me today

    I see this on Android a lot, seems to happen to words that are very close to getting cut off.

    The 'never' I mentioned above is wrapping now...

    Nevermind. Veto is cut off here now:

    Look, the Senate is hard at work to-
    JUST IN: McConnell blocks House bill to reopen government for second time
    Under Senate rules, any senator can ask for consent to vote on or pass a bill, but any senator can object. McConnell blocked the two bills, saying the Senate wouldn't "participate in something that doesn't lead to an outcome."
    OH COME ON. The outcome is the fucking government opens back up, because Trump will buckle like a thing that fucking buckles easily. I'm too mad to come up with something clever.

    Like a belt.

    I think Trump would veto, though. And that is what McConnell is really afraid of. If a veto happens and enough senators have changed their mind on whether to override it, or if the Republicans in the House don’t, suddenly it’s Trump and the Republicans’ fault.
    But it's their fault right now literally anyway.

    Yes. But his argument is that Trump will just veto. And people, so far, have taken that bullshit as an excuse. If he actually passes the bill and Trump vetoes it, suddenly people start asking, “What next?” And what’s next is an override attempt. Failing that would put the names of senators who voted against reopening the government out there as responsible.
