It’s been a solid 11 months since we launched our ginger emoji petition on Change.org to get redhead characters added to Apple products.
And now, even after attracting over 17,000 signatures and delivering the long list of supporters directly to Apple HQ’s doors, we’re still without a ginger smiley to use to express ourselves.
The latest update of Unicode Consortium 9.0 has revealed a collection of 74 new emoji characters, ready be released in June. Among these emojis is, alas, no ginger representation except a carrot and a fox.
We wouldn’t say it’s huge progress, but it’s better than nothing. We suppose.
Let’s not give up the fight!
