New Emojis for 2019 to Include a Waffle & Period Emoji?

Unicode has announced 230 new emojis for 2019 which include waffles, yawning faces, and flamingos. Controversially, they’re debuting a pinching hand emoji (already labelled as the “tiny @#$&” emoji) plus a period emoji intended to normalize menstruation.
