Apple felt the need to replace the pistol emoji with a water gun due to all of the crime and death related to the little revolver.
Cartoon deaths have become a growing problem as of late, with countless amounts of murder towards the depressed emoji, as well as the upside down sarcastic smiley face emoji. Apple has finally decided to take a stand with its next iOS update, removing the weapon once and for all.
But… There is a light at the end of the tunnel
I did a bit of research and found one particular emoji that will be here next month that will 100% break the internet.
Apple… You’ve done it again. A tribute to Harambe the Gorilla will be featured in this next update and it will surely break the internet, Twitter especially. If I have to lose the pistol in order to get the gorilla, I’ll take that 10 times out of 10.
P.S. Apple was drawing up ideas of emojis after their update last fall, and a gorilla was in the talks… Did Apple know what was going to happen on May 28, 2016? Did some of the classified emails that Hillary deleted involve Harambe the Gorilla and Apple? Living in America is the government’s game, and we’re all stuck playing it.
