Pichai responded to Baekdal's tweet that he was happy to fix the error "if folks can agree on the correct way to do this."

While it's not confirmed whether Google will change the emoji, the issue sparked a massive debate among Twitter users on the perfect order of the cheeseburger ingredients.

While some backed Apple's cheese-on-top style, others said both the emojis are incorrect.

Both Apple and Google emojis are wrong!

One Twitter user pointed: "They're both wrong. Google's cheese is wrong, Apple's lettuce is wrong. The correct order, from bottom up, is burger-cheese-toppings." Meanwhile, Google employees also joined, saying, "So proud to work at a company which has its priorities right."

Other EmojisGoogle's cheeseburger emoji different from other

According to Emojipedia, the cheeseburger emojis offered by Apple, Facebook as well as Samsung have the cheese sliced placed on top of the patty.

So, it looks like Google is the only tech giant that uses the emoji with the cheese below the patty.

Generally, it is accepted that cheese should be placed directly on top of the patty for optimal melting in cheeseburgers.
