Apple Is Replacing the Gun Emoji With a Water Pistol — And People Are Pissed
Apple unveiled a bunch of new emojis this week, including emojis representing single parents, female athletes, a pride flag and a green water pistol. The new emojis will come with the company's new operating system, iOS 10, in the fall.
The company hasn't officially announced that the water gun will replace the regular gun emoji, but all signs point to that being the case, especially since Apple blocked a rifle emoji from its platform earlier this year.
Some people aren't taking the change well, calling it an act of political correctness gone wrong. A few people even go as far as to call this a first and second amendment violation, while others complain about the lack of the gun emoji and the appearance of the pride flag at the same time.
