Actually, what happened is that a grain buyer sent a message to a farmer in March 2021, in which the buyer wrote that the company was interested in buying 86 tons of flax at a price of $ 12.73 per bushel.

Grain buyer Kent Mickleborough contacted a farmer named Chris Achter by phone and sent the message to the phone asking him to reply to the contract. On this the farmer reacted through Thumbs-up emoji. When the turn came for delivery, the farmer did not deliver Flax and then its price increased. After this both started fighting with each other. Kent said that Chris had replied to the message, which means the deal was OK. But the farmer said that he only wanted to tell through emoji that the contract has been received.
