or black heart emoji [blak hahrt ih-moh-jee]
What does 🖤 mean?
The black heart emoji is the perfect emoji for a rainy day when you are sitting inside, listening to My Chemical Romance or Dashboard Confessional, and feeling angst-y and misunderstood.
It means you are feeling emo, have a dark twisted soul, morbid sense of humor, or just love sad stuff.
2017 HAS BEEN UNFUCKINGREAL. I'm gunna be so emo when it ends 🖤
Where does come from?
The black heart emoji was released by the Unicode Consortium in 2016 along with 72 new emoji including the drooling face and the face palm. On Twitter, it is a basic heart shaded completely black, but Apple and Google present a gradient from grey to black. Facebook gives it a darker border, and Microsoft adds a little white glint.
Who uses ?
According to Kimberley Richards of Romper, this emoji is “for the cold, dark, and twisted sense of humor that lives in many emoji-using people.” It is a symbol of emo-pride among people who are moody and angst-ridden.
