Unicode supports Blackulas now


This version of the 🧛 Vampire emoji has the 🏿 Dark Skin Tone applied, which is displayed as a Black Skin Tone on supported platforms.

The Vampire emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.

    None of the skin tone variants are at all discernible in the unicode.org renderings. The vampmoji pictured above is identical to every other skin tone variant. I guess they leave those details to the vendors?

    I know, it's XKCD and everyone who wants to read it has already read it, but this recent one about Unicode 10, and modifiers did make me chuckle.

    [T-Rex] + [red skin tone] == MOZILLA!

    Waddaya mean skin tones only apply to people?!
