As Pride celebrations start to roll in, Facebook has just announced it has dropped its custom reactions including the popular rainbow flag and Pride button. Along with the aforementioned removals, the social media platform will also take away custom reactions pertaining to certain holidays and cultural moments. Lisa Stratton, a spokeswoman from Facebook told Business Insider, “We are no longer doing custom reactions for major holidays or moments in culture.”
With the removal of the Pride reaction, many are taking to the Interact to voice their anger. Take a look at some of the reactions below.
For more Pride celebrations, take a closer look at the Nike “BETRUE” Zoom Fly.
