Good grief, people need to take a fucking chill pill. Now Apple is “racist” for a yellow cartoon thumb? Don’t you people have anything serious to be outraged by?
In an effort to better represent society, Apple has revealed a new set of globally diverse emoji that will come in six different skin tones.
The tones include an option that turns a character yellow – a shade that the the Cupertino-based company says it intended to be ethnically neutral.
But the colour has angered some Apple users, particularly those in China, who claim that the yellow tone is offensive to Asians.
