Google laid an egg on Easter as far as James Woods is concerned.
“Once Upon a Time in America” star and noted conservative Woods ripped into tech giant Google on Easter Sunday, accusing the company of having an anti-Christian bias.
Woods’ assessment came in response to a tweet from Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson, who took Google to task via his own social media account.
“So Google has a doodle for every obscure ‘woke’ person/event imaginable but nothing for Easter?” Watson wrote.
To which Woods responded, “They loathe Christians. Plain and simple.”
TheWrap has reached out to Google for comment.
According to Fox News, Google last acknowledged Easter with a doodle in 2000, when it replaced the o’s in the name of the search engine with a pair of candy eggs.
A Google spokesperson told TheWrap, “We don’t have Doodles for religious holidays, in line with our current Doodle guidelines. Doodles may appear for some non-religious celebrations that have grown out of religious holidays, such as Valentine’s Day, Holi’s Festival of Colors, Tu B’Av and the December holiday period, but we don’t include religious imagery or symbolism as part of these.”
Google did acknowledge Easter with a tweet on Friday which read, “Happy Easter! Gather ’round for this week’s particularly egg-cellent search trends.”

Woods and Watson weren’t the only ones to call out Google over the omission. Conservative author Jack Posobiec took aim at the company on Sunday, tweeting, “Happy Easter to everyone except Google today,” with an image of the unadorned Google logo as it typically appears on the site.
