Grindr has private one of its latest updates, clearly analogous with complaints it was enlivening drug use.
The world’s biggest happy dating app forsaken one of its new operation of tradition emojis after many users warned it could mount for clear meth. The app’s users warned Grindr that the emoji was being used as a code for selling the drug or for using it during sex.
UPDATE Grindr sent Metro.co.uk the following statement:
‘The “T” Gaymoji was dictated to follow the “D” and resemble the acronym “DT,” also famous as “down to” followed by whatever it is that the user is down to “do”. The “DT” Gaymoji will be accessible in the next refresh.’
There was a lot of conjecture over the definition of T when Grindr expelled its own operation of emojis progressing this month.
While some suspicion it could impute to members of the trans community, others warned there could be a some-more sinister meaning.
The custom characters allude to renouned Grindr slang.
