Google CEO promises to 'drop everything' to fix burger emoji

He tweeted that he would drop everything and address the issue on Monday. Many of us might find the debate insignificant or even frivolous, but Google chief executive Sundar Pichai is dropping everything else to focus on the issue today.

"A cheeseburger emoji, otherwise known as a burger".

A user named Thomas Baekdal took to Twitter to report the faulty "build" of Google's cheeseburger emoji. "Two buns, containing a meat patty, cheese, and sometimes lettuce or tomato".

Don't mess with emojis or cheeseburgers - at least that's the message Google received after being bombarded by a series of complaints about the tech company's cheeseburger emoji design.

Sundar Pichai took to Twitter to address concerns about one of his company's stock emojis, as people were anxious about the difference between the Apple burger emoji and the Google burger emoji.

Joel Embiid profanely expressed his frustration with the 76ers' minutes restriction
If I feel great and my body feels great and my knee is fine, I should play 30 minutes or more. If the Sixers are being blown out, or are up big, let Embiid rest and bank up the minutes.

But the many concerned Internet citizens agreed neither the Google emoji nor the Apple emoji is as bad as the Samsung emoji, which places the lettuce between the meat and the cheese. On the other hand, Google's cheese slice would dissolve into a sticky puddle on the bun, making it soggy and hard to eat.

Not a single one places the cheese underneath the patty though, so Google's alone in its mistake there.

According to Emojipedia - the definitive catalogue of all things emoji - the hamburger emoji was first approved as part of a Unicode 6.0 round in 2010 and subsequently added to Emoji 1.0 five years later in 2015.

Let's hope Google execs don't have plans to dive into the restaurant business anytime soon.
