Philip Wang’s Boba Cafe Trolls the Internet With a Boba Emoji

In case you didn’t know, July 17 was unofficially dubbed as the #WorldEmojiDay and people got what they’ve been asking for years now: a boba emoji – or at least so they thought.

Bopomofocafe, owned by Wong Fu Productions’ Philip Wang, recently posted a picture on Instagram that appears to be a tweet that says: “Wow! Can’t believe they finally made a boba/bubble tea emoji! And it looks like a BPMF cup!” accompanied by a few boba emojis and the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay.

You can make plans with a loved one with a single emoji (🍆?) or call someone an idiot with another ( 🤡). This is the result of centuries of human evolution and technological advancements.
