Alternative uses

The term "emo" has also been used in recent years on the Internet as a
form of derogatory insult, especially toward those who appear
emotionally unstable, or those who talk about issues in their lives to
people in public forums or chat rooms. Similar to popular curses, it
tends to be used as a general insult even when it is not directly
applicable. Phrases such as "don't cry emo kid" are used frequently as
a quick brush-off in this context. Some use the term "emo" to describe
a feeling of depression, harking back to the association of depression
with the Emo subculture.

(I'm just taking a guess here)
