Rather being on top of the patty, the cheese is under the patty causing an outburst on Twitter, after Thomas Baekdal tweeted out the discrepancy.

Apple's hamburger emoji, on the other hand, placed the cheese in the right order causing more criticism for Google.

Some found it hilarious, while some laughed at the silliness of the debate over a hamburger. Some went as far as to ask questions as to why there was no onion and two leaves of lettuce or give an opinion on how the emoji for WhatsApp looked the most delectable.

In the middle of this debate, Emojipedia gained the most amount of popularity as it released a picture with the tech giant’s hamburger emoji and also showed the trend in the searches post the initial tweet from Baekdal.
