While we’re happy with this new wave of emojis, we can’t help but notice that a beard emoji wasn’t included. Like the redhead emoji or the tattooed emoji, it has so far been left out of the emoji community.
At Zeus, we believe in a fair representation of reality, and as bearded folk, we think the beard emoji deserves a spot on your emoji keyboard.
Men have been growing beards since the dawn of humanity - shouldn't we have an emoji that represents such a large population of us? We have included a link to a beard emoji petition – if you, too, believe there should be an emoji for beards, do sign.
