Unless you want to look like a fucking dumbass, it’s usually best to avoid texting teens at all costs. But if you absolutely must, here are the emojis that Gen Z hates the most and why.
What exactly is left in this doomed world for young people to applaud?
Smiling Face With Sunglasses
Is it that hard to write “I’m cool like a yellow face wearing sunglasses”?
Body-shames people too large to fit into 32-by-32 pixels.
Long story, but the guy’s actually kind of a dick.
This is a picture of an old person. He looks to be 40 or something. Only old people would send this, probably to other old people or something.
There’s nothing “lit” about bestiality.
Face With Cowboy Hat
It reminds them too much of the cowboy hat shortage their generation faces, which didn’t affect previous generations.
Mobile Phone Off
They probably hate this one because they’re addicted to their dang cell phones!
Don’t be surprised when Gen Z tries to use cancel culture against the universally beloved purple circle.
Gen Z strongly opposes the encroachment of androids into bodybuilding spheres, a practice that renders flesh and blood completely obsolete.
The fuck is that?
Gen Z prefers 11 o’clock.
‘Okay’ Hand Sign
Only okay if you identify as a Nazi; otherwise, it’s cultural appropriation.
It’s just a cheugy rip-off of the UAE’s flag.
The top hat emoji does nothing but make the recipient feel foolish by conjuring feelings of being deceived by close-up street magic.
Perceived as a passive-aggressive way to communicate that the Roman emperor has decided you will die to satisfy the audience.
The generation finds this emoji unrealistic, as they will never be able to afford a home of their own.
