Tech brands have often recalled their products, but have you ever heard of an emoji recall? Well, it looks like Google might just have to announce one!
Only two days ago, the Internet, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, ‘dropped everything’ to discuss the placement of cheese in Google’s burger emoji. What started as an Apple v/s Google emojis debate, eventually became an international concern about the correct order of stacking up a burger!
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

Don’t we take our emojis seriously! Yes, yes we do. And it’s worse this time around, because they’ve gone and messed with our beer too!
Yesterday, another Twitter user and emoji enthusiast, Thomas Fuchs, expressed his dissatisfaction with Google’s beer emoji.
Hmmmm, Google, this is not how beer works pic.twitter.com/rLsmThcLKM

Fuchs’ chief concern? The weirdly inexplicable gap between the beer in the mug and the foam on the rim! And he wasn’t alone!
The glaring design flaw did not go down smoothly with many others, who trolled the know-it-all Google for not getting their favourite beverage right.
1. Have you any tact, Google?
I understand that they fuck up burger, ok get it, everyone makes mistake. But don’t…mess…with…beer!!!!

2. Can’t anyone get it right, FFS?
Google have no idea how beer or physics work, twitter have beer-filled handles, and HTC have literally never seen a beer in real life. pic.twitter.com/0N4FL53tdr

3. A Google employee had to vouch for the food at Google’s cafe!
While the cafes don’t serve beer the food is actually pretty good. 🙂 Come by!

5. We need to have a drink-off to prove this!

6. Conspiracy Theory ALERT! And that’s when our world changed forever!
The discovery that Google was a front for alien invaders began, oddly enough, with their peculiar cheeseburger and beer emojis.

7. Every office needs to have one, TBH!
Shows the importance of diversity. This wouldn't have happened if every team were required to hire an alcoholic artist.

8. Et tu, Apple?
@Apple Beer doesn't work this way either. It's not multi toned.

Google, y u do dis?
Looks likes Sundar Pichai and Team will be spending several consecutive Mondays pouring over each emoji in their kitty and making sure they’ve gotten it right.
As for all of us on the Internet finding new trivial pursuits every morning, think it’s time we got a job, no?
