When it comes to memorializing a Member of the LGBTQ community Google goes all out for its home page graphics but today on Memorial Day Google is receiving backlash after its lackluster effort to honor American heroes.
Google’s new grey graphic to honor those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, lacked any type of creativity or color.

Just days before Memorial Day here’s how Google celebrated the life of Barbara May Cameron a relatively unknown lesbian rights activist.

If you click on the Google graphic it does take you to page with poppy flowers that says “To all who have served, Thank You.”
Here was social media reaction to Google’s attempt to honor those who have fallen on the battlefield.
Hey @Google I know you’re feverishly getting a different pride logo ready for every day of June but I think you forgot that today is Memorial Day. You know… the holiday honoring the people who died for you to be able to celebrate Pride for a month. It’s still early. Fix it. 🇺🇸 https://t.co/fxJ20kOnIs

I love how google will make murals for the 132nd birthday of people nobody has ever heard of but Memorial Day it’s like “ehh because we have to.” pic.twitter.com/90EDRGZOVA

So Google has chosen not to honor our fallen military on Memorial Day.
I dare Google to do the same on June 1, the start of “Pride month.” https://t.co/wqmwmHUey2 https://t.co/CxwrsYMuBb
