"Facebook appears to have removed a feeling fat emoji from its website after a body image group protested the double-chinned image.


The puffy-cheeked, double-chinned emoji remained on the site Tuesday as a status update option, but the text was changed from `feeling fat` to `feeling stuffed.`"


This is example 1,001 of political-correctness run amuck.
