When including emoji in the body of an email message, Gmail (on the web) shows the emoji correctly in the subject line in the inbox preview (top part of the attached photo) but displays a deconstructed version where the base emoji and the gender have been split apart (bottom) in the body of the message. This problem seems unique to the Gmail web client and it's displaying correctly elsewhere. Any ideas?

I'm fairly certain this is a Gmail issue and out of our control ☹️ I've also posed this question to our team and will circle back if I hear of a workaround... but I suspect Gmail just needs to get with the times! *shakes fist*
