Microsoft kills its gun emoji

Microsoft kills its gun emoji

The software giant has finally followed in the footsteps of Apple, Google, Twitter, and Samsung by replacing its pistol emoji with a green and yellow water gun emoji. The pistol emoji had drawn criticism in the last several years with school shootings happening on a regular basis and social media rife with threats. Now that Microsoft has gotten rid of its gun emoji, the last major tech giant with a pistol emoji left is Facebook. But as Business Insider reports, the social media giant says it is preparing to do away with its pistol emoji in favor of a water gun one.
