Sundar Pichai promises to 'address' burger emoji 'issue' at earliest

Google CEO to ‘drop everything’ to talk burger emoji Baekdal's original tweet has been debated by many

Google only added cheese to its emoji burger in Android 8.0, previously only supplying a tomato and some lettuce.

As of Monday morning, the controversy is still boiling, with about 1,600 comments under Pichai's tweet all trying to advise him on how to make (draw?) the ideal hamburger.

On Apple devices, the cheeseburger emoji shows the ingredients placed with tomato on the top, then cheese on top of the patty, with lettuce sitting on the bottom bun.

Should the cheese be on top or underneath?

Twitter users were quick to weigh in on what they thought was the proper order of a burger's toppings.

Ensuring a soggy bottom as well as top.

LG goes without the tomato, with a straightforward bun-lettuce-cheese-meat-bun combo, while HTC throws in a second patty, puts lettuce in the middle, and cheese above the upper patty and below the lower.

"Going to be controversial here and say that lettuce needs to stay out of burgers".

Not a single one places the cheese underneath the patty though, so Google's alone in its mistake there. Well, it's all down to how emojis work.

The debate went straight to the top, reaching all the way up to Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

The company launched the second version of the Pixel phone this month and it has been garnerning more attention than ever mainly due its extensive use of artificial intelligence and an impressive camera that outscored Apple's latest iPhone's score in DXO rankings.

He said he would "drop everything else we're doing" and address the error on Monday. There's no one definitive burger, and there's no one definitive way to arrange their contents.
