middle finger emoji

Apple's iOS 8 update that was released on Wednesday was met with one cheer and one jeer.

Cheer: "Finally, racially diverse emojis!"

Jeer: "Where the hell is the middle finger emoji that we were promised?!"

Twitter had absolutely zero chill about the fact that no one can text middle fingers to haters, lovers, family and friends. What's the point of texting if you can't flip people the bird via emoji?! This might be worse than the lack of taco emoji. Or #TacolessGate2014-Present.

But until the day of middle finger reckoning is upon us, we came up with 15 alternatives that will work almost as well as just sending that flipping off emoji. They range from gentle indifference to seething hatred, so hopefully we've covered all the people in your life:

1. "Bye, Felicia. Done with you!"
