Google‘s decision to celebrate Cesar Chavez’s birthday today in its Doodle, rather than Easter, has spurred some mixed reviews on Twitter. Cesar Chavez, whose 86th birthday would be today, was a labor leader, organizer, and activist.
A lot of people are so upset that they are threatening to switch to Bing. It seems that Google actually hasn’t created an Easter doodle since 2000. In 2011, for example, Google celebrated what would have been German chemist Robert Bunsen’s 200th birthday.
Meanwhile, Bing’s website features a ton of brightly colored eggs to commemorate Easter. But to Google’s defense, President Barack Obama declared March 31, 2013 as Caesar Chavez Day.
We have reached to Google to learn more about its decision, and will update this story if we hear back.
For now, here are some of the tweets from people threatening to make the switch to Bing:

Thank you Google, your decision to honor Cesar Chavez on Easter makes it easier to switch to Bing.
