The post attracted a range of comments with one saying: "For younger people (I’m 24 for reference) the thumbs up emoji is used to be really passive aggressive. It’s super rude if someone just sends you a thumbs up. So I also had a weird time adjusting because my workplace is the same."
Meanwhile, people on Twitter have also complained about the emoji, claiming it is "passive aggressive".
