Google killed its April Fools' Day joke after it allegedly lost people their jobs
Google's prank this year backfired — fast. Google has abruptly killed off one of its April Fools' Day "jokes" after it caused outrage online, with multiple people claiming that it lost them their jobs. The premise of the joke was simple. In Gmail, next to the standard "Reply" button, Google added a "Mic drop" button. Using it would reply to the email, archive it — and also add a GIF of a Minion dropping a mic.
