Eggplant Is Banned On Instagram

Instagram unveils the function to use emoji in your hashtags but users soon discover that a search for the eggplant emoji results in “no tags found”. Instagram confirms that the eggplant was blocked because it violated their community guidelines. The emoji for the banana and the peach though remain unaffected. The ban is later removed.
