No Google Doodle For Easter Sunday Sparks Backlash

Google supposedly snubbed Easter as they did not display a Google Doodle to observe the festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ for the 18th year in a row.

A few reports argue that the world’s leading search engine is ignoring Easter deliberately as it has a doodle to celebrate everything else right from a burning man (a pagan cult festival in the desert) to scientists’ birthdays, gay pride etc. 

Reports state that the last time Google had a doodle on Easter was back in the year 2000 and that this is not the first time that the search engine has tried to “whitewash Christianity”. 

In the past too, the company has been criticized for censoring Christian vloggers on YouTube, going as far as to censor questions about Jesus on its home device.

This year too, Google faced plenty of backlash on Twitter for cold-shouldering Easter.

One user named Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars editor-at-large wrote, “So Google has a doodle for every obscure ‘woke’ person/event imaginable, but nothing for Easter? #EasterSunday.”
