We’ve waited too damn long for the taco emoji and now that we have it, we’re getting all types of feels…

First, let’s take a moment to welcome the emoji we’ve all been waiting for. (Turn your headphones up.)

?My love has come along.?

Yes it has Etta James…well, almost.

The world seems a little more vivid today.

Which is great because I almost ran out of things to be excited about.

Some people are super excited.

Think Taco Bell will jump on the bandwagon of emoji food ordering?

People are even suggesting how to improve this taco emoji.

“Nice first draft, Apple. Come back when you have the emoji fully worked out.”

Not impressed.

Preach it, Myles.

Then sh*t started getting real.

Woah. Pump your brakes, girl. No need to let this taco emoji divide us. We’ve come too far for that.

And a few were ready to petition for something to tacos justice.

By soft taco you really mean taco because hard shell tacos are not the norm in Mexico.

The emoji’s authenticity was called into question.


As has its ethnicity…

Apple was so close, it hurts.

Like, have the employees never been to a Mexican restaurant?

Some speculated Taco Bell may have had a hand in this misstep.

¡Te lo juro! Real tacos do not look like that IRL.
