    "What do they have against Australians?!" Maia asks in the video.

    Maia also brought up the lack of racial diversity in the emoji keyboard.

    "Look at all those white people!" she exclaimed, while a screen showed dozens of white emoji characters. Maia also pointed out that there are only two minority emojis.
