Gingers Rejoice, You're Finally Getting An Emoji

Gingers Rejoice, You're Finally Getting An Emoji

It's a huge day for the internet - if you haven't noticed from the streams of commentary on social media - it's #WorldEmojiDay and to celebrate, Apple have unleashed a huge range of new graphics on an unsuspecting public.

What's more, today is the day that, after years of waiting, ginger people get their own emoji.

Jeremy Burge, who runs website Emojipedia and came up with the idea for World Emoji Day, told the Daily Mail: "As always, some of the most vocal requests for new emojis are about representation, and this update delivers some of the most common requests.

"In particular, the redheads and curly haired options are likely to be popular."

So rejoice, people of Scotland, Ron Weasleys of the world and Prince Harry lookalikes everywhere - you've finally made it.

"I do think some users will be in for a shock if they're expecting every emoji to have a redheaded option," added Burge, acknowledging that the rollout is, at first at least, limited.
