About

Boar Head Exploding is a Boar Memoji version of the Head Exploding emoji depicting a brown hog with a mushroom cloud erupting out from the top of its head. Released in September 2019 as a part of a standard Memoji pack for iOS, the emoticon has been used as a humorous, often bad-mannered reply, and later gained virality as a reaction image in memes.

Origin

On September 19th, 2019, several standard Memoji sticker sets, including a Boar Memoji set, were added to iOS 13.0.[1] The 15 Memoji set included a boar version of the Head Exploding emoji (full set and the Boar Head Exploding Memoji shown below, left and right).


&$!#%

The Memoji did not see presence in memes until December 2021 when a screenshot of a fake message exchange in which the Memoji was used appeared on Reddit (shown below, left). On December 21st, 2021, Redditor Noteggs_ posted the image to the /r/comedyheaven[2] subreddit, where it received over 54,100 upvotes in a year. On July 22nd, 2022, Redditor samarm132 then posted a similar meme to the /r/GoodFakeTexts subreddit, gaining over 3,100 upvotes in five months (shown below, right).

The image achieved viral popularity in mid-November 2022 when Twitter[3] user @606HATRED posted a screenshot of the emoji being used to react to thirst traps, captioning the screenshot, "never sending n--des again." The post received over 15,800 retweets and 296,800 likes in three weeks.
