Kay Burley chose a NSFW emoji to tweet about her son – 12 mocking reactions

Although it looks innocent enough, unless you hate aubergine, it’s used to represent a penis, and we have to say – if your penis looks like that, get to a hospital as fast as you can. The emoji is considered to be so sexually charged that it was banned temporarily on Instagram, which was mildly unfair on vegans trying to drum up excitement for their dinners.

With that in mind, we have to say we were a little surprised to see this tweet from Kay Burley.

The subsequently deleted post was in response to a horrible troll suggesting she jump off a cliff with no safety gear, so we can see why she was questioning their bravery, but we can’t see what made her choose that emoji. Of course, people had thoughts.
