This could be the best or the worst thing to ever happen, depending on your diet.

But hey, at least your vegan buddies can now sleep easier at night.
In a move that’s a sign of the times in which we live, Google has announced this week that it was tweaking how it renders the salad emoji, reports New York Magazine.
This is what it used to look like versus how it looks like now:
As y’all can see from this informative tweet, the new and improved salad emoji – which previously included a visible slice of a hard-boiled egg – is now egg-free.
A big victory for the vegans everywhere, which is fair considering the redheads have also been recognised in emoji form.
Some carnivores on Twitter aren’t too pleased:
Okay, as a carnivore myself, I sort of feel Corine Vloet’s tweet on a spiritual level, but I digress.
Others are also taking the piss out of this whole situation:
These are the questions, folks.
But Jennifer Daniel, the Google UX manager who first pointed out the change in the salad emoji, was merely joking about the “inclusion and diversity” bit. She explained in a follow-up tweet:
Um, so I suppose eggs don’t count as “other salad items”, then?
Oh well, guess it’s back to using separate egg and salad emojis.
Then again, who knows how long it’ll take before the egg emoji disappears altogether, along with other non-vegan emojis.
