Expand Emojis With The Spread Operator

There are a number of emojis that are not stand-alone unicode characters, but instead are a combination of two or more other emojis. The two main places this happens is with family emojis and emojis using non-simpsons skin tones.

You can use JavaScript’s spread operator to expand these emojis to see what their base components are. Here is a screenshot of a few that I expanded from Chrome’s dev tools.
