The Internet Isn't Happy About The Makeover The Sassy Girl Emoji Just Got On iOS 10
Bad news: she's no longer sassy
2016 has already been quite a year. But as if Brexit and Hiddleswift splitting up wasn't already enough of a personal insult, there's now been a fairly devastating turn of events meaning that the iconic sassy lady emoji has officially lost her sass.
You have Apple to thank for this one and with the iOS 10 update that hit this week, along came a whole load of new and updated emojis.
Among those affected are the sassy lady, officially known as the 'welcome lady'.
You see, when the original list of emojis was thought up, the sassy girl was actually just supposed to depict a woman showing you around and making you feel welcome. It was only the fairly simplistic drawing that led most of us to believe she was the universal sign for throwing shade.
Now that iOS has updated the designs of the emojis, she has had her iconic pink v-neck swapped for a slightly more conservative high neck purple jumper. Her sassy hand is now more flaccid than a five day old banana and gone is her knowing smile.
Instead her expression frankly now just looks a little dead behind the eyes.
Naturally the internet is not cool with this and has been throwing shade at Apple harder than the jaunty red dress dancing lady and side eye emojis combined.
Some are even taking one for the team and taking it straight to President Obama...
While others have been faced with an existential crisis:
Although some did have a theory on where Apple got their inspo for this change...
RIP the sassy girl emoji.
Your life was short but you brought us much joy and served us well in the eternal quest to be as petty and throw as much shade as humanly possible.
