Between the two buns, the company's graphic designer made a decision to add, from top to bottom, lettuce and tomato, then patty, then the cheese. The order that Google used, on the other hand, was the bun, lettuce, tomato, patty, cheese, and then bun.
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.
On Sunday, the internet got into an intense debate about burger emojis.
He later said how his tweet, after Pichai's retweet and reply, had attracted 4.3 million impressions and had been interacted with over 1.2 million times in 48 hours. On the other hand, Google's cheese slice would dissolve into a sticky puddle on the bun, making it soggy and hard to eat.
Eagle-eyed mobile phone users have discovered a discrepancy between the cheeseburger emoji Apple uses and the one Google uses. "I can't believe anybody would stack it like that emoji", wrote one user.
While it was generally agreed in the ensuing discussion that cheese should never be placed on the bottom, the original post spawned a larger debate on how a burger should be constructed.
Other media companies like Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter also have designed their emojis with the cheese on top of the patty, according to Emojipedia. The whole issue hogged the limelight when Google CEO Sundar Pichai jumped into the "cheesy" discussion.
Google is the odd emoji out.
"They're both wrong. Google's cheese is wrong, Apple's lettuce is wrong".
