A new emoji being rolled out this year will depict a hand doing a pinching motion to depict a 'small penis' and mock modestly endowed gentlemen. 

The rude emoji is one of 270 that are coming to all phones this year, as unveiled in the new official Emojipedia list for 2019.

The announcement is the most diverse yet and indicates an expanding scope of represented groups, including people with various disabilities.

A number of physical disabilities are now represented including a range of wheelchairs, a blind person, sign language, hearing aids, along with two seeing eye dogs.

The new diverse updates were requested by Apple which submitted a number of designs after consulting a number of campaigns and charities on the issue. 

Phil Talbot, head of communications at disability equality charity Scope, said: 'Love them or hate them - emojis have become part of our everyday digital lives. 

'Social media is hugely influential and it's great to see these new disability-inclusive emojis. Up to now disability has been greatly under-represented.'

'We'd also like to see greater representation of disabled people and disability across all parts of the media and social media.' 

Others include a yawning face, a raccoon, an ice cube and new food-themed pictures including waffles and butter.  

Emoji lovers can also look forward to several new animal emojis, including sloths, otters, flamingos, orangutans, and skunks.   

In the sixth major emoji update since 2014, there is a bigger range of skin tones and relationship types in the latest update. 

The much-requested white heart has been added and the symbols are part of Unicode Emoji 12.0, a list of new emoji created by the Unicode Consortium. 

But, the one garnering most attention is the 'small penis' emoji.

One man wrote: 'An emoji that I can use to imply that an Internet stranger has a small penis, 2019 may not be so bad after all.'

Another tweeted: 'Looks like we're finally getting the small penis in 2019.'

But another user was unimpressed, writing:  'Keep seeing that meme if this hand was an women would have a field day meaning men have a small penis. Wish ppl would stop sharing it because it's shallow and bollocks so stop it right now.'
