Because google is incompetent and dirty, question is, what Microsoft is going to do about google's bad behavior, because it is misleading users that are not tech savvy.

Google's claim it's because Microsoft didn't use their (Google's) revocation system is a sure sign that Google is attempting to become a monopoly on the web. Definitely fodder for the EU (the US won't do much if anything) in their anti-trust investigation.
Open sourcing the chromium engine and then requiring competitors to use your revocation service is simply not a good idea. Now if Google had said "Hey, Microsoft, please use our revocation service for updates to extensions downloaded from our services" then they would have some grounds to stand on. Extensions downloaded from Microsoft's extension services wouldn't be impacted by those revocations.

@obermd I'll leave the lawyering to the lawyers. I will note, however, that there's no requirement that any Chromium-based browser use Google's Chrome Web Store. As you noted, Microsoft has its own extension store for Edge users, and you won't see any spurious warnings there.
