Yes, you can crash your friends' WhatsApp, both WhatsApp Web and mobile application, by sending them not any specially crafted messages, but just Smileys.

"In whatsapp it allows upto 6.5k characters,when we reach 4.2k the web browser starts responding slowly but it continues upto the threshold and after we enter 6500 characters it crashes"

The recent bug tested on Android devices by multiple brands and successfully crashed:
  • WhatsApp for Android devices including Marshmallow, Lollipop and Kitkat
  • WhatsApp Web for Chrome, Opera and Firefox web browsers. 
It is sure that the latest version of WhatsApp is affected by this bug.

However, remember, if you have kept some records of your chat with that particular friend, you’ll end up losing them all.
