It was actually in September that Facebook and instagram decided to ban the use of the eggplant and peach emojis when used in a sexy (sexual) manner.
If you are using the eggplant to describe the best eggplant parm you’ve ever had- that’s ok. Or perhaps you are bragging about an epic peach pie- an actual pie- that’s fine too.

[CONTENT] WILL ONLY BE REMOVED FROM FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM IF IT CONTAINS A SEXUAL EMOJI ALONGSIDE AN IMPLICIT OR INDIRECT ASK FOR NUDE IMAGERY, SEX OR SEXUAL PARTNERS, OR SEX CHAT CONVERSATIONS.
