The emoji 👁👄👁 is also known as “ eye, lips, eye ”. It is said that its implementation was first on the TikTok platform to express shock, disgust or confusion after watching a video.
Likewise, there are other versions pointing out that the animated emoji can denote surprise, shock, intrigue and desire .
Some argue that this symbol represents the phrase “it is what it is, ” which is used when things don’t go according to plan.
It has been a figure that many have considered propitious for the year 2020, when looking with shock at the events generated by the coronavirus pandemic.
The great scam of the 👁👄👁
In that same year 2020, a campaign emerged from the Twitter account @itiseyemoutheye that was identified with the Emoji 👁👄👁.
The campaign was so overwhelming that it had a very high impact on the social network due to an alleged surprise where they intended to launch a new application.
The thousands of users eager to know what was coming, began to make “donations” (for supposed social benefits) just to advance in an apparent and privileged list.
Ultimately, the people who donated and sent their emails ended up being misled. The dynamic of the campaign was to raise funds that went to criminal justice reform, mental health services, and the Black Lives Matter Foundations .
It is estimated that the collection was in the margin of $ 65,000 where many people who do not support said movement, contributed involuntarily.
Controversy over the first appearance of ️👁👄👁
Much is said about when was the first appearance of the emoji 👁👄👁. The vast majority tend to point to the TikTok social network as a pioneer for this symbol.
However, there is a curious theory that points to its origin in the popular video of a girl on YouTube under the title ” some of y’all bout to be real mad at me but it must be said” (some of you are really mad at me but it must be said) 👁👄👁.
