Gingers unite! It’s the moment we have all been waiting for


It’s what redheads around the world have been waiting for… the ginger emoji is finally here!

The Google Play Store for Android has just revealed their selection of ginger emojis.

Following an international outcry over the absence of redheads from the popular feature, Google have finally decided to include our carrot-topped friends.

This move comes after a petition was signed by over 15,000 people demanding that ginger people be represented in the ever-popular collection. However, Apple has yet to give in to the demands.

There are 16 different types of ginger emojis that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, including a Ron Weasley emoji as well as a Conan O’Brien one.

Although Apple hasn’t budged on introducing redheads just yet (even after its ethnically inclusive emoji update earlier this year), a range of stickers representing ginger people will later be included in the iPhone.

Ginger people weren’t the only ethnicity to be angered by Apple’s latest updates. Asian people took particular offence to the new yellow emoji, despite Apple’s insistence that this person was supposed to be genetically neutral.
