Comment (by dd32):

 This appears to be because the BuddyPress.org database tables are `utf8`
 and not `latin1` or `utf8mb4` which support Emoji's.

 So no, Emoji's didn't previously work as far as I can tell :)
 I've also tried to force it, and it just doesn't save no matter what the
 collations are set to.

 Looks like the best option forward here would be to perform the
 utf8->utf8mb4 upgrade for the appropriate tables. There's a bunch of sites
 on BuddyPress.org where the table collation are `latin1` too, but they can
 probably be skipped.

 r9949 was superseded by a change made directly in WordPress.org's HyperDB
