It’s been almost a week since Apple released their ginger emojis, so how do we feel about them, dear redheads? Many of us are thrilled beyond belief, feeling rather “ohmygodicantbelievemytimehasfinallycome”…

But there’s also a large proportion of gingerkind who aren’t happy with the new characters…
Hold up. I thought the ginger emoji would be a colour option the same as all the other hair colors are for 🤷🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️💁🏻♀️ etc not just 👩🏻🦰?! What’s that all about? Disappointed AF! ☹️

While it’s great that we finally have some red-presentation on emoji keyboards, it’s obvious there’s still a long way to go. What about when we want to shrug, share a little ginger baby, or just be a superhero?
Until we get more expressive ginger emojis, we’ll keep using things like 🦊🦁🔥🥕
How do you feel about Apple’s redhead emojis?
