Thankful Reaction is a purple flower emoticon which was introduced by Facebook as a temporary reaction in 2016, spawning a number of parody images and the catchphrase "thankful reacts only." In May 2017, the reaction was re-introduced in anticipation of Mother's Day.


On May 5th, 2016, Facebook began testing the "thankful" reaction in certain geographic locations. One of the first to spot the new emoticon was Twitter user @sreedevsharma.[1] The violet flower emoji was subsequently removed, before appearing again in May the following year.


On October 21st, 2016, the Getting Fisted In The Back Of A Nissan Micra Memes posted a photograph of purple flowers with the caption "Thankful reacts only" (shown below, left). The following day, the Lusty Literature Memes Facebook[6] page posted a photoshopped picture of a bathroom door with the caption "thankful reacts only."

Meanwhile, the God Emperor Trump page posted a photoshopped version of the Kekistan flag with the violet flower along with the message "Thankful reacts only" (shown below, right).
