• Watch Ronan Farrow Tackle One of the Most Pressing Issues of Our Time

    If you clicked on this story because you honestly thought MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow might have done something worthwhile for once, well…you’ve been Ronan-rolled yet again.

    As you can see in the video above, The Boy Wonder of Cable News is showing no signs of abandoning his parade of patently ridiculous and irrelevant segments. This time, the issue at hand was whether there needs to be more “racial diversity” in Emojis. I imagine these are the things young Ronan thinks about while he cries himself to sleep at night.

    At one point in the segment, Farrow took umbrage with a dark-skinned Emoji sporting a turban. “It’s not a particularly nuanced portrayal” of “someone who is Arab or Middle Eastern,” he lamented.

    Yeah, I’m sure it’s really easy to design “nuanced” artwork for a cartoon face that’s barely one centimeter large. Why do I get the feeling that “Ronan Farrow Daily” should be renamed “First World Problems”?

    I will cut the kid some slack though, as there does exist one Emoji that’s been kind of pissing me off lately. It kind of looks like a cross between Frank Sinatra and Woody Allen, only really stupid. It seems like a real insult to Frank and Woody.
