Its been a while since emojis became a part of our lives. The word emoji comes from Japanese meaning pictograph. The basic function of an emoji is to fill in the emotional cues that are otherwise missing in texting. An emoji that has particularly been in the spotlight lately is the white heart. This is because of a controversial Instagram DM which was supposedly sent by Molly -Mae to Youtuber turned professional boxer, Jake Paul, In 2018.
Emojis or emoticons express even complicated emotions with accuracy and ease. This is probably why they are so popular among the young and the young at heart. The emoji in question has featured in a message which was supposedly sent by Molly-Mae to Jake Paul. Molly-Mae has reacted saying she sent no such message to Jake Paul and that it was faked. This is where the white heart plays a key role. The message includes a white heart which is a symbol of pure love. From this, we can clearly understand that the message was photoshopped or faked as the white heart emoji was released by Unicode only in 2019.
Ready to fight

Jake has been viciously trying to infuriate Tom and also create a rift between the latter and Molly-Mae.

According to Jake Paul, the controversial message was sent to him on October 15th, 2018.
