After furious internet debate, Google Android has fixed the placement of the cheese in their cheeseburger emoji.

Roughly a month after seemingly the entire internet rallied against them, Google has finally changed the placement of the cheeseburger emoji’s cheese in their Android mobile operating system.

The burger’s cheese was formerly placed on top of the bottom bun, where many felt that it should not go. 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted that the company would “drop everything else we are doing” and address the issue if people could agree on the correct way for the cheese to go.

There was a massive debate in the thread, with the majority vetoing cheese on the bottom.

However, there were a few who swam against the current and had the audacity to think that cheese belongs on the bottom.
