(KNX 1070) - It's an emoji house.

Rather, it's a bright, hot pink colored house with two very expressive emoji's painted on the walls.

The house, in Manhattan Beach, is certainly turning heads.

Some people like it, others hate it and neighbors are fighting about it.

One resident says the owner is “sending a message” to neighbors who complained about the house being illegally used for short term rentals.

The emoji house has two emoji's drawn on its walls: one has a zipper over its mouth, which usually means "be quiet" or "shut up," while the other emoji has long eyelashes and is sticking its tongue out.

Some residents said the house affects property values and affects them as people living in the neighborhood while others felt it could be "individualistic."

The city says its hands are tied in this case and there are no ordinances dictating which colors can be used to paint homes, according to KNX reporter Cooper Rummell.

The owner of the emoji house could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.
