Public bug reported:

Steps:
1. Enter one emoji which is not of the primary skin tone (yellow) in any text 
field, for example 👍🏿 (Thumbs Up Sign, Type-6, i.e. black skin tone).
2. Tap on the backspace key.

Expected:
The entered emoji gets deleted.

What happens:
The emoji turns into a primary colour (yellow) one (👍). Tap on the backspace 
key once more, then it gets deleted.

This is actually not totally surprising as when one chooses a non-
primary skin tone, two characters are entered (the base emoji + the skin
modifier). But from a user's perspective it feels kinda strange.
Telegram desktop client (and probably other phone OS's too) deletes the
emoji after a single backspace.

Device: E5, stable, OTA-13
