The flag for Puerto Rico emoji became very prominent on social media in September, 2017, after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island. The natural disaster caused long, island-wide blackouts and supply shortages, which many think was exacerbated by an inadequate response from the Trump administration. Many people on social media used the emoji to express solidarity with the Puerto Rican people and raise money for their relief.
Here now and despite all the hardship and discouragement- this is something I have heard over and over again from folks who don’t even follow broadway. “En Enero viene Lin-Manuel.” 🇵🇷✊🏽 https://t.co/LGZGHBSVo5
