Package: fonts-vlgothic
Version: 20141206-3
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/vlgothic/VL-PGothic-Regular.ttf
File: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/vlgothic/VL-Gothic-Regular.ttf

The glyph for 🙃(U+1F643 UPSIDE-DOWN FACE) in VL Gothic is not an upsid
e down face but a smiley with a banner saying "ELITE" over it.
The issue occurs in both versions of the font (Gothic/PGothic).
I've attached a screenshot of it rendered in GNOME character map.
Here are examples of what the glyph should look like:
