SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have all made it easier for netizens to express what’s on their mind through emojis or emoticons — those little, expressive people faces that tell their online friends whether they are happy, sad, excited, surprised. Or pissed.
Today, a new emoticon made its debut on social media. It’s called the Duterte emoticon.
The emoji is an unmistakable graphic representing controversial Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
It is an emoticon that netizens can use when they want to express anger or frustration. It’s an emoji that tells your friends, “Son of a b*tch” or “Son of a whore.” Without being censored!
Oh, how the Internet has made it much easier for everyone to communicate!
