Should Apple create a redhead emoji?

(WXYZ) - There's a new petition asking Apple to create a redhead emoji for the next IOS update.

Apple announced last week that it had planned to offer more diverse emojis to reflect different skin tones. However, most of the proposed new icons come with brown, black or blond hair.

A petition that has now been created on wants to change that.

It states, "There's still an important group of people missing from the emoji family of 300 new symbols." It goes on to suggest adding a red-haired emoji in the mix.

As of Friday morning, the petition had already collected more than 3,500 signatures.

Once it reaches 10,000 signatures, it will be submitted to Apple for consideration.
