Nowadays, Emoji is its own language. Without even breaking a sweat, you can convey full narratives with a smiley poop or an eggplant. But Facebook has come under scrutiny over its “Feeling Fat” emoticon, with some critics saying that “fat” is not a feeling.
The protest became so active (nearly 17,000 people signed the petition) that Facebook has actually removed the “feeling” from its options. Perhaps “bloated” or “too much salt” would have expressed the same feeling without actually saying the f-word? Facebook did issue a press release, though, stating, “So we’re going to remove ‘feeling fat’ from the list of options. We’ll continue to listen to feedback as we think about ways to help people express themselves on Facebook.”
When you lose something that may have been perfect for you, it can be hard to find something to replace whatever that is. Which is why we’ve created some creative ways to express how you feel about your bloating, indigestion or water weight you’ve packed on from eating a whole bag of chips.
Must be nice, right?
Oh, you poor thing. We get you.
Imagine getting to eat hot dogs as your career?
There’s a reason it is called “winter weight.”
And you know what? We never learn!
