The peach emoji is changing and this is why everyone is so mad about it

Today, we mourn. Apple’s peach emoji has been updated, and it no longer looks, sob, like a butt. No, now it just looks like… well, like a peach. Apple’s beta version of iOS 10.2 is out and along with the routine updates and some new features, come some redesigned emojis, including a more botanically-correct, but less anotomically #correct peach.

Since the dawn of texting, people (ahem, Kim Kardashian) have been using the peach emoji as a stand-in for a butt but the NEW peach emoji will look like this aka it looks nothing like a butt.

Let us pay tribute to our fruity emoji derrière of yesteryear.

Dear Beautiful, Bulbous Peach Booty

How we will miss your soft

subtle curvature


Your sensual play

with light and texture

Your seductive center seam

with which you’d tease

And entice us

with your fleshy blush

We will miss you

O.G. Peach Emoji


what you did

for sexting

Your impact is lasting

and will not be forgotten


We will continue to use

the new you

to symbolize

behinds, bums, buttocks and asses


But it won’t carry an equal

titillating weight

And the evolution

of human communication

will never be the same

Without you, tender fruit

That looked

Like a butt

Some other emoji updates include a face palm (particularly useful today), a clown (a little insensitive, no?), a gorilla (sob, Harambe), an arm taking a selfie (so you can just use that instead of going to the pains of actually taking a selfie, how convenient), and a thumbs down.


That’s how we feel about your treatment of our peach, Apple.
