Lil peepnuts are going nuts over a new emoji that’s making its way to the iPhone app.
But, they’re also worried that this new emoji might be a bit too much.
“They’ve got a new hashtag, #nutbolt, and people are using it to say it’s a joke.
That’s a really bad idea,” Lil peeps owner T.J. Mavromatis said.
He also worries that the emoji will be “totally unhelpful” to people who use the hashtag for other things.
“It’s just a horrible idea,” Mavromeatis said, adding that he’s had people ask him about it and then delete the app altogether.
“This emoji is just a bad idea.
It’s so bad that they’re putting it out there,” Mivromatis added.”
I can’t use this.
Mavromeis’ company, Lil Peepnuts, launched in 2011.
Its Instagram account is filled with pictures of lil peeps in their original form, including a shot of a baby lil peeper.
But it’s since been replaced with the new emoji.
