Everyone has a cause.
“There is a racial imbalance” among the smiley faces we all use in our texts and emails, she claimed during chat with Conan O’Brien.
“Look…at all those white people!”
CONAN: I’m fascinated by you — you are a proud Australian. You are proud of coming from Australia?
MM: Well, yeah — [Laughter]
CONAN: I’m terribly embarrassed Australian.
MM: I’m really not patriotic at all. I have no connection to the homeland except when it comes to — you know emojis — all of — there are a lot of flags and then right next to the flags there’s is huge blank space and then Australia’s. Look at that.
CONAN: So there’s no Australian flag emoji. How hard would it be to make an Australian flag emoji?
MM: I don’t think it would be that hard. On the topic of that. There are also a lot of white people emojis.
CONAN: Yes, I’ve been thinking about other things — is there a racial imbalance.
MM: Actually I brought another one. Look all — at all those white people.
CONAN: That’s it? Is there any diversity?
MM: Yeah, there are.
CONAN: OK. We’ve got to get on that.
MM: I have a Chinese one on my phone.
CONAN airs weeknights at 11:00 PM on TBS.
