just learned with horror that deleting any of the "family" emojis in google slides does not remove the emoji, but rather kills off each individual family member one by one, starting with the children

The soundcloud: . I DARE y’all to give so much money to the ACLU that my data team has to do an analysis of the “emojicide bump”

As many folks have pointed out, families are not the only compound emojis. Skin tone and gender are also often tacked on as an afterthought to other atomic emoji forms.

The way the unicode is implemented in platforms like Google docs leads to many kinds of horror movie fodder. If you want to remove the emoji of a Black woman running from a Google doc, you have to first delete her gender, and then delete her Blackness.

I'm horrified...and intrigued? by the underlying UTF-8 that controls this?

Pretty much, \U0001f468\r\U0001f469\r\U0001f467\r\U0001f466 You delete one element of the merged/grouped emoji. RStudio gets all wonky and pasting 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦‍ displays on OSX.

I can't believe they made the dad watch his entire family get murdered

You can use the same trick to have them change skin tone along the way…
