Just as people metaphorically talk about something as “sickening” or “making us want to puke,” so, too, people use the face with open mouth vomiting emoji to dramatically characterize something as disgusting. This can range from bad behavior to lovey-dovey displays of affection to a situation that makes someone feel uncomfortable.
Can’t stand people who are unnecessarily rude and disrespectful to teachers, cleaners, etc 🤮
