But Twitter users noticed over the weekend that there’s something very wrong with Google’s cheeseburger emoji. Luckily, the company’s CEO noticed as well and promised to do something about it.
Media analyst and author Thomas Baekdalfirst brought attention to the egregious error on Saturday.
“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,” he tweeted, along with a photo of the two different-looking cheeseburgers.

Baekdal also tweeted out an Emojipedia roundup of burger emojis used by other companies. Google is the only one that puts its cheese below the burger:
Luckily, Google CEO Sundar Pichai spotted Baekdal’s viral tweet about the flawed cheese placement and promised to address it first thing on Monday ― as long as everyone could agree on the proper stacking order of a hamburger.
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

Pichai’s tweet led to a lot of very opinionated cheeseburger builders:
Cheese belongs on top. What are we? Heathens?

The cheese goes on top.

There is only one way: the cheese must melt directly on top of the patty.

Remove the cheese. Problem solved!

Cheese always goes on top so it can melt. No contest here... pic.twitter.com/7cnbcVZZgO

I think we can all agree these are both unacceptable without more ]]>🥓
