Samsung Ruins Cookie Monster's Day

If you weren't aware, July 7 was considered World Chocolate Day. A day that beloved children's entertainer Cookie Monster greatly approves of.

Cookie Monster doesn't tweet a lot, but he did go out of his way to post a celebratory tweet for World Chocolate Day declaring:

IT #WORLDCHOCOLATEDAY!!! Me celebrating with lots of chocolate chip COOOOOKIES! đŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒđŸĒ

Those cookie emojis sure do look delicious:

This is how Cookie Monster's chocolate-chip tweet looked on Samsung devices:

What many people didn't expect is that something as innocuous as the cookie emoji would have such a different appearance on a major platform.

Here's a comparison of cookie emojis:
