In this week’s edition of “What’s Triggering Social Justice Warriors”, it’s an ingredient in the salad emoji that until this month featured an egg.
But since vegans don’t eat eggs, the emoji gatekeepers have eradicated the egg from the salad, making an already boring menu item all the more boring.
Google’s User Experience Manager, Jennifer Daniel, announced the change on Twitter saying there’s been “big talk about inclusion and diversity at Google” citing the redesigned emoji as proof, but how can she talk about inclusion by embracing exclusion?
According to The Vegetarian Times, only 0.5% of Americans are vegans, meaning that 99.5% have no issue with eggs.
And apparently, a critical mass of 0.5% of the population is enough lunatic tail to wag the collective dog for the tall-foreheads at Google who are increasingly making important decisions regarding freedom of speech.
