emoji lookingCyrus Shepard posted on Twitter that not all the emoji characters were gone, that he was able to bring up a hazard sign directly in the Google search results.

This only shows up on select browsers, I was able to replicate it using Safari on Mac, for a search on []. The character is ⚠️ and it renders on some browsers.

Google supposedly killed off Emojis from displaying in the search results this weekend.

I suspect Google may have possibly missed some and they will squash the remaining icons as they come across them.
