    This is just silly. So because Clorox, a bleach company, questions why bleach wasn't included as an emoji, they are obviously racist? After all, if racially diverse emojis were released, and a bleach company wants to have their product included, they must obviously want all emojis to be white.

    If Clorox's tweet offended you, then you were going out of your way to be offended.

    Seriously? Over emojis?

    I guess I can see how some folks would take offense considering the new emojis. And I'm glad she explained the comment for the folks who didn't understand.

    But geesh. There's enough real stuff taking place to deal with that there's no need to be going off half-cocked about a slight that wasn't a slight.
