Google Causes Trouble Over D-Day Doodle

Latest News Reading Time: < 1 minute

D-Day was the start of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied western Europe. As people pay tribute to those that lost their lives, Google seemed to have other, slightly less important things on their mind…


Instead, Honinbo Shusaku, a professional player of the traditional Chinese game, ‘Go’, was placed as the Google Doodle. Users took to Twitter to share their disappointment.

Google later tried to rectify the problem by replacing the Doodle with their standard logo and a link to D-Day content. A spokesperson for Google said the Doodle had been a global one, and had been put up “in error”.
