Facebook replaces 'feeling fat' emoticon with 'feeling stuffed' after online pressure

Facebook is bowing to public pressure by replacing its "Feeling Fat" emoji with "Feeling Stuffed."

Thousands of people signed an online petition to protest that it promoted online body shaming.

The group 'Endangered Bodies' started the Change.org petition last month, saying "fat is not a feeling" and use of a chubby emoticon with a double chin encourages a negative body image.

The emoji is one of more than one-hundred "feelings" that people can add when updating their status on Facebook.
