Grindr released its very own emoji keyboard this week, allowing users with the latest update of the hook-up app to message, flirt, and express their sexual preferences with the help of an array of cartoon Gaymojis.
The "gaymoji" set ranges from alcoholic drinks to sexual positions — and yes, there are plenty of eggplants.
Users quickly jumped on social media to share their excitement, or disapproval, concerning the new feature.
But one emoji in particular — a simple capital “T” — became the center of debate. Many users were quick to point out the emoji could stand for “Tina”, a popular slang term for crystal meth.
In an official statement emailed to BuzzFeed News on Wednesday, Grindr said that the "T" was originally intended to be paired with the "D" next to it on the keyboard. "The 'T' Gaymoji was intended to follow the 'D' and resemble the acronym 'DT,' also known as 'down to' followed by whatever it is that the user is down to 'do'," the statement read.
Clealry many users did not originally assume the "D" and "T" emojis were supposed to be used together.
