For the dreaded day of April 1, Google supposedly decided to play with its many users by adding a "Mic Drop" feature, according to Mashable. Next to the regular old "Send" button, a "Send + Mic Drop" button reportedly appeared in the hours preceding April Fool's Day. By pressing the new button, a GIF of one of those ubiquitous yellow Minions dropping a mic was automatically embedded into the email as it was sent out.

Many people failed to see the humor in the prank, which sites like Tech Insider insist really happened before Google pulled it.
