We’ve all fallen victim to the notorious eggplant or peach emoji being sent to us before. Perhaps it was over a dating app or maybe just a friend commenting on your photos from Vegas. Either way…we all KNOW what a peach or eggplant emoji suggest. And Facebook and Instagram aren’t here for it anymore.
Instagram and Facebook are cleaning up their act and the first port of call is a war on emojis. They’ve officially banned the use of these emoji’s including the infamous eggplant, notorious peach and ever so suggestive water drips.
Apparently there’s some new guidelines which state that these salacious emojis aren’t allowed to be used to suggest getting’ down n dirty or cover up your nakie body parts.
I feel like the reason that these specific emojis are being targeted is pretty self-explanatory…they are almost always used to suggest something of sexual nature. And I don’t have to tell you what an eggplant, peach or water drips symbolize, you know what’s up.
The announcement follows days after rapper Kanye West accused social media, with its racy and provocative sexual content, of making him suffer the way Jesus suffered.
Kanye West said in the Apple Music Beats1 interview, “I suffer – and I appreciate the suffering because we can just feel a little bit of what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media makes me suffer. I suffer from that and by me saying this out loud, I’m sure there’s other married men that suffer in a similar way that are happy to hear me say, ‘Oh ya, I’m suffering.”
Heck, you’ve probably even sent that ish to someone yourself! But just know that even if you toss any of those emojis in a comment or caption and it relates back to being suggestive in any regard, you can kiss your Instagram or Facebook good bye because they’ll deactivate your peach!
