Well, That Didn’t Take Long.. This Emoji Is Now Banned On Instagram

Posted on by

Behold the first emoji to be banned from the Instagram hashtag lineup. Apparently, this little veggie eggplant emoji may be a little too rude for Instagram to handle.

Discovered by a staff member over at Buzzfeed, Katie Notopoulos noticed that this was the only emoji that came up with no search results on the Instagram app. The theory is that the eggplant emoji is associated with male genitalia which could be the reason why it cannot be searched. Instagram has declined to comment according to Daily Mail. Emoji hashtags was introduced last week as a part of Instagram’s latest update.
