Apple changes bagel emoji after complaints


(CNN) — After a social media outcry, Apple changed the design of its bagel emoji.

The controversy erupted when Apple put out an emoji depicting a rather plain-looking bagel without cream cheese or any other kind of spread.

The internet responded with a resounding “OMG.” Various social media users described the bland appearance of the design.  Philadelphia cream cheese itself weighed in — launching a twitter poll and petition. 

Apple finally relented and released an updated emoji depicting a doughier bagel with cream cheese. 

The company’s emoji can now join the ranks of presumably acceptable bagel designs from Google, Microsoft, Samsung, and Twitter.
