A Californian seaside community is in uproar after a home was given a new paint job featuring two huge emojis on a bright pink background.
Manhattan Beach residents railed against the makeover during a City Council meeting, citing problems with sightseers.
One speaker called the paint job graffiti and another said it was an attack on neighbours.
Both bright yellow emojis are cross-eyed and have big eyelashes. One has a goofy expression with its tongue hanging out, and the other has its mouth zipped shut.
The new paint job appeared after neighbours reported the home was being used for short-term rentals and the homeowner was fined $4,000.
Owner Kathryn Kidd told KABC-TV she did not realise short-term rentals were not allowed and she denies the redecoration is retaliation.
