Gen Z Is Triggered By The ‘Passive Aggressive’ Thumbs Up Emoji

There is a lot that has been said about the younger generation. Generation Z, as they are often referred to, has taken a lot of heat for various things, and it seems as if we now have something else to add to it.

Many of the younger people who were asked don’t think that the thumbs up emoji is a nice thing. They feel that it is passive-aggressive, and it tends to trigger them.

It began with one Gen Z member writing: “I started an ‘adult’ job where we use Microsoft Teams to connect with each other for work.

“Currently, there only a few emojis you can use to react to a message (unless of course, you respond, and can use any emoji). Most people at work use the ‘thumbs up’ reaction all the time.

“I don’t use it much. I either ‘heart’ reactions or reply even if it’s a short ‘Great!’ or ‘Thanks!’ (I also feel like I use too many exclamation marks, but that’s a different story).

“Anyway, I think it’s normal for to ‘thumbs up’ messages, but I still feel like it’s such an unsettling response. Does anyone else feel this way?”

This was something that many people understood because they felt the same way, even though they didn’t say anything. Others, however, felt that it was silly. I guess this will just continue to be a matter of debate.
