What Does the KKona Emote Mean?

What is KKona?

Kkona Emoji KKona is an custom Twitch emote that is typically spammed by users in response to someone when they say or do something seen as stereotypically American or “redneckish”.

Who is in the KKona Emote?

As you might have guessed from the name that’s Kona, a long time streamer on Twitch from way back when Justin.tv was still a thing.

How Can You Use the KKona Emote?

KKona is the first emote to be included in Better Twitch TV (BTTV), a browser extension to improve your Twitch experience in a bunch of ways, one of them being many many more emotes to choose from.

You’ll need to have it installed in order to use the emote on Twitch. Heads up though, people without the extension will just see “KKona” instead of the emote.

An alternative, at least if you’re watching his stream, is subbing to him. That way you’ll get access to the legendary golden KKona, something even BTTV doesn’t have.

Origin of the KKona Emote

In 2018, Kona, for the first time ever, revealed the origin of the emote as being from a picture taken with Danielle Spencer, an actress most known for her part in the 70’s show What’s Happening!!, at the Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con.

  1. DeftAnesthetik, that is not the common usage on the parts of Twitch I frequent. I have never once seen it used in anyway that wasn’t “haha stereotypical American.”

  2. Don’t disagree here but as an avid KKona user I use it to mean
    “Just kidding but I’m not kidding” or as I describe it ” Kappa no Kappa”
    I don’t think you are far off. It’s an emote to use when you honestly don’t care about what you even just said. If that’s Redneck then so be it. KKona
