About

Peach Emoji (πŸ‘ ) is an iPhone emoji that gained notoriety for its visual similarity to a buttox, leading it to be popularly used in sexting and other instances of sexual innuendo.

Origin

In October 2010, Unicode 6.0 introduced the Peach Emoji[1] (shown below). Over the next few years, the peach emoji became widely used to depict a butt due to their visual similarity as perceived by many users, which led to the monikers β€œbutt emoji” and the β€œbottom emoji," according to Emojipedia.[2]



Spread

On March 15th, 2015, Urban Dictionary[3] user queen.of.sass submitted the top definition of the peach emoji, which reads β€œthe emoticon of the peach or for people with immature minds it is the emoticon of the ass.” On Instagram, the hashtag #Peach [4] has over 243,000 posts (as of November 2nd, 2016), with many of the pictures prominently featuring a butt.

Change Controversy

On October 31st, 2016, Apple introduced iOS 10.2, which features version 9.0 of Unicode and a new set of emojis.[5] Among the new emojis, Unicode offers an updated version of the peach emoji that many felt no longer looked like a butt.



The change was met with backlash from users who appreciated the old peach emoji's resemblance to a butt. The following day, many media outlets covered the online backlash to the change, including SelectAll,[6] Buzzfeed,[7] and Slate.[8]

Due to the widespread backlash, Apple returned the peach to its previous, butt-like appearance in iOS 10.3 on November 15th, 2016.

The change was met with praise, as documented in a Twitter Moments[9] roundup that day. Gizmodo[10] called the change a victory for "arse activists."

Impeachment Posts

On September 24th, 2019, musician Lizzo tweeted[4] "IMπŸ‘MENT" (shown below), referring to the same-day announcement that the House of Representatives would launch a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The tweet received over 20,500 retweets and 124,700 likes in three months, with the peach emoji gaining popularity in posts about impeachment.
