Netizens have been angered by the act of American stand-up comedian cum recording artist Roland Powell popularly known as Lil Duval making fun of musician Stivo Simple Boy on the gram.
On Monday, Lil Duval shared a photo of Stivo, likening him to the “New Moon Face” emoji, an act that was interpreted as throwing shade at the singer’s appearance.
Lil Duval put up Stivo’s photo with a caption that read, “If 🌚 was a person.”
New Moon Face
A cross check by Pulse Live indicates that the “New Moon Face” emoji is always perceived as creepy and used to express disapproval.
“🌚 New Moon Face.
May be used to represent the moon more generally. Popularly perceived as creepy, used to throw shade (express disapproval), or convey various suggestive or ironic sentiments,” a definition of the New Moon Face emoji used by Lil Dival to mock Stivo Simple Boy.
Lil Duval’s act elicited wild reactions among Kenyans, who took it to his (Duval) comment section to square it out.
