In fact, many emoji can be misconstrued as something a bit naughty, creating a messaging minefield. So which ones are you using wrong? Aubergine emoji 9 The aubergine (or eggplant in some parts) has become one of the most recognised filthy emoji. It's fair to say, some are probably more familiar with it in a naughty sense than its original vegetable purpose. For those that don't know already, it's used to illustrate the male appendage.
