Great news guys, there are 157 new emoji coming this year and they disappoint. Especially if you’re a ginger.
Yep, redheads across the world are finally being represented via iOS.
Emojipedia released a video Wednesday showing previews of the upcoming ideograms.
It seems hair in general has been neglected since the dawn of the emoji with curly and white haired people also not getting a look-in.
Check the video here:
Don’t have any hair? Not a problem. 2018 also promises the first ever bald emoji.
Among the newbies are a ‘woozy face’ a four-love-hearted smiley as well as activities like sewing, knitting, lacrosse, and skateboarding.
The emoji has made good news thus far to say their 2017 reputation was tarnished by the egregious Emoji Movie.
Last month they even took on President Donald Trump after he branded several African countries as ‘sh*tholes.’
Artist Robin Bell took it upon himself, armed with several poop emoji to graffiti one of the Donald’s hotels.

Robin Bell, the founder of video projection company Bell Visuals, has made headlines in the past for projecting other messages onto Trump’s buildings.
He projected ’emoluments welcome’ and ‘pay Trump bribes here’ onto the hotel as well as ‘#SessionsMustGo’ and ‘I thought the KKK was OK until I learned that they smoked pot’ onto the Department of Justice building.
Trump was put under pressure to apologise for alleged remarks where, during a discussion about VISA reform, he asked: ‘Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?’ after a lawmakers suggested granting visas to individuals from Haiti, El Salvador and multiple African countries.
He denied using the language reported.
Whoa. I’ve never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States. After an emergency mtng today @UN, Africa group says it “is extremely appalled at…outrageous & xenophobic remarks” attributed to Trump & “demands a retraction and an apology.” pic.twitter.com/5KkdwppUzL

A spokesperson for the United Nations human rights office, Rupert Colville, labelled the alleged comments as ‘racist’ and the African Union have demanded he apologise.
In a statement, the African Union said:
[Trump’s] remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity.
While expressing our shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union strongly believes that there is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current Administration.
There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries.
