Apple released new “ethically diverse” emojis because, well, people were complaining. I get it, there weren’t enough multicultural choices out there.
Of course, there are some problems. The first being, if you are iPhone-less or haven’t updated your phone, every new emoji comes out like an alien. Other problems? There’s still no taco or middle finger emoji, which are really staples and it’s silly that they haven’t included that. I mean, come on.
Despite these new additions, people are complaining, of course. Including myself. It’s warm out and my skin isn’t pale, it’s probably red from the sun. So how the hell am I supposed to represent myself as sunburned? Did they even think about people with freckles? SHAME. But yes, let’s have a yellow lego looking twin playboy bunnies.
Two dozen flags have been added, but Apple didn’t stop and think about having the Texas flag. Or a unicorn. Or a stegosaurus. Yeah, let’s just treat the dinosaurs like they really are… extinct. Where is the hispter emoji? Am I supposed to just text my friends a scarf, pipe, and man with a beard? This is just plain ignorance and I won’t stand for it.
I’ve never even read Harry Potter but I’m pretty sure he should have some symbols. Also, One Direction, minus Zayn Malik of course. Traitor. How about girls with highlights? What about a girl mountain biking? Or red head? Gingers are people too for Gods skae.
Let’s just blame the government. #ThanksObama
In other, very non related news, the first trailer for True Detective is out and I’m counting down the days until June 21st. I’ve never cared a bout a TV show more than this one and Friday Night Lights. Interesting how Taylor Kitsch is in both. And to name drop some more: Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and Rachel McAdams.
Can we just pause for a moment and think about the fact I hit publish on this blog post.
