Let's Make The Lobster Emoji Happen

This petition had 5,607 supporters

There is currently no lobster emoji. 
There should be. And can be. 
Sign our petition. Let's make the lobster emoji happen.

There are over 3,500 #NoLobsterEmoji posts on Instagram and Twitter, and in August 2017 Unicode Consortium, the non-for-profit governing body responsible for determining which emojis get added announced the lobster as a potential candidate for release in 2018.  There are 67 new draft emoji candidates. The list of final candidates will be determined at the Q4 Unicode meeting.


With our lobster-loving friends' help, we know we can convince Unicode to push the Lobster emoji to the finals and become an OFFICIAL emoji in 2018! 

The emoji sea is filled with crab, shrimp, octopus, squid, whale, spouting whale, Blowfish (?) and even non-fish-human-deep-sea-diver! ! And out of the water, shrimp gets extra love with tempura! There is a large void in the shape of our favorite Maine lobster. 

We know you want it - you ask us why there is #NoLobsterEmoji daily.  Now we finally have the chance to help get it. Sign our petition. Fill this clawed void. Let's make the Lobster Emoji real.
