Breaking News: Redhead emoji finally on the table after campaign for ginger equality.
Emoji have become much more diverse in recent years. Instead of just the basic yellow cartoons, users can now select a variety of skin tones and hair colours, while many now have male and female options.
But there is still no redhead option. An online petition demanding ginger emoji, organized in Scotland, has garnered 20,000 signatures. Redheads make up less than 2 per cent of the world's population, but in Scotland, Wales and Ireland it is around 10 per cent.
