Woman fighting poverty and injustice by clicking angry face emoji

A WOMAN who clicks on the angry face emoji on Facebook after reading about terrible events feels she is doing everything she can to help.

Office worker Nikki Hollis has used the tiny cartoon picture to help solve problems including the Syrian refugee crisis, plastic pollution and child poverty.

Hollis said: “The world is full of these awful problems, which I know about because my friends put them on Facebook. I don’t read the papers myself because they’re just full of loads of boring writing.

“It’s important to make your voice heard, so I read the headline, click on the angry face and then do something more fun like a quiz about which one of the Kardashians I’m most like.

“The situation in Yemen is really upsetting me at the moment. I’m most like Kim, by the way. Yay!

“What I don’t understand is how people helped out with disasters in the olden days. I suppose you could tell your neighbour, but apart from that I can’t think of anything you could do.

“Oh god, there’s just been a flood in Bangladesh. Let me click the emoji. There. That’s that sorted.”
