Here’s what Kirsten Dunst’s response tweet to Celebgate means

Several of the victims whose privacy was violated in the continuing Celebgate hack have commented about the attack on Twitter, but it was Kirsten Dunst’s brilliant use of emoji that stole the spotlight, and our hearts.

The actress, whose photos were among those posted on 4chan’s /b/ subforum, tweeted a brief message on Monday afternoon to address the incident: three words and two emoji.

A slice of dough, cheese, tomato sauce, and pepperoni. A smiling mountain of excrement. Separately, the two emoji could have many applications, but combined, as seasoned emoji communicators know, they can mean only one thing.

“Piece of shit.”
