Facebook Bans These Emojis Citing ‘Sexual Solicitation’
In an effort to "clean it up", Facebook and Instagram have banned three emojis that, when paired together, can depict sexual activity.
The eggplant, water drips, and peach have been banned, if they suggest sexual activity.
The eggplant emoji has been used to suggest a penis, a peach resembles a buttocks and water drips are in reference to ejaculation. They can still be used in captions, but not in a manner that suggests or asks for anything sexual. -Daily Mail
Guilty parties will have their posts removed and repeat offenders' accounts may be deactivated.
This comes on the heels of another major social media platform, Twitter, banning political ads.
