The company that created that vastly popular Candy Crush mobile game, King, has filed for its IPO. It is tipped to be one of the bigger internet IPOs this year, but questions were immediately raised.

The issue of the ‘predominantly white’ emojis has reared it’s head a couple of times, with people asking why there are not many emojis that depict people of colour. So it should come as no surprise that the issue has been brought up again. Although this time around, Apple has responded.

There have been many outcries over the past year by people, and even celebrities like Miley Cyrus and actor Tahj Mowry, to diversify the standard iOS emoji range. However, it wasn’t until MTV Act blogger, Joey Parker, sent an email directly to Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, that an official response was given.  (more…)
