According to Unicode Consortium president, Mark Davis, one of the latest emojis released is inspired by Stephen Colbert from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
“Just cut off my nose, dip me in yellow paint, and I defy you to tell the difference.” — Stephen Colbert
Stephen Colbert, the host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, now effectively has his own emoji, with Davis of the Unicode Consortium referring to it as the “Colbert Emoji”. The emoji in question, which was created by Maximilian Merz, features — and is officially called — “Face With A Single Eyebrow Raised”.
The emoji, which Time Magazine has described in detail is included with the release of Unicode 10.0, alongside more than 20 other emojis, ranging from “Crazy Face” to pie and a hedgehog. Time described the emoji as intending to convey “skepticism, accompanied by the concepts of disapproval and (mild) surprise.”
