 Didn't want to open a new ticket, but I think Emojii support is more than
 an enhancement and kind of necessary to prevent unexpected behaviour.

 If someone is posting content with Emojies in e.g. bbpress,
 ''$wpdb->query()'' returns false and BuddyPress fails silently without
 creating the activity in ''BP_Activity_Activity->save()'':

 if ( false === $wpdb->query( $q ) ) {
     return false;

 So, in cases where Emojis are "injected" by bp_activity_add() BuddyPress
 doesn't work as expected. Depending on the level of usage of activites
 (e.g. "What's new?" widgets), this could be an issue.
