10,000 redheads are demanding one thing from Apple

10,000 redheads are demanding one thing from Apple
The Next Web

You might have noticed that pretty recently, Apple added 300 emojis in order to fill a very important need: racial and cultural diversity. Although they left out one important group: natural redheads.

Natural redheads account for just 2% of the population, but now 11,000 of them of them have banded together and have signed a petition demanding Apple give them a "ginger" emoji.

Click here to read the full petition over at Change.org, but below are the highlights I pulled out of it for you:

Despite the recent racial and sexual 'diversification' of Apple's emoji to be released in the next iOS 8.3 update, there's still an important group of people missing from the emoji family of 300 new symbols.

Redheads. In all their glorious gingerness, they've been missed out. Again. If you say you're going to diversify, why not add a few red-haired emoji in the mix? Natural redheads may be rare at less than 2% of the world's population, but that is 138,000,000 iPhones waiting to happen.

What do you think? Did Apple make a big mistake not including redheads in their emojis? Let me know what you think by posting in the comments below.
