The internet is outraged once again, folks. This time, their target is emojis, specifically, Google‘s cheeseburger emoji.
The company began receiving complaints about the digital burger when Twitter user Thomas Baekdal posted an image of their emoji compared to Apple’s. The gripe? Google places the cheese underneath the patty, as opposed to on top.
I think we need to have a discussion about how Google's burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top pic.twitter.com/PgXmCkY3Yc— Thomas Baekdal (@baekdal) October 28, 2017
The tweet even caught the attention of Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, who said they’d “drop everything else” to fix the issue, provided everyone can agree on how it should be.
Will drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday:) if folks can agree on the correct way to do this! https://t.co/dXRuZnX1Ag— Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) October 29, 2017
Good fucking luck, the internet agrees on nothing. It is simply perpetual turmoil. But it’s safe to say the loudest voice is from the ‘bloody fix it’ camp.

If Google’s leaving Cheeseburger Emoji as it is, I may need to return my Pixel 2 XL.— แจงงง. (@9JANG) October 30, 2017
Cheese misplacement is clearly the result of not enough diversity on the emoji team. Damn those vegetarians.— Jessica Guynn (@jguynn) October 29, 2017
Time magazine reckons Google is the only company to put the cheese underneath the meat, with the rest choosing to maintain its optimal melting position on top of the patty.
Whether or not they’ll actually fix it is yet to be seen, but at least all their other emojis are OK… Right?
