Description of the issue:
Emoji are displayed as monochrome line art, or simply with a blank box. (See attached image)
Emoji display correctly in Chromium (79.0.3945.79) and Firefox (71.0).
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Install Ubuntu 19.10
- Install the latest Debian version of Brave(1.1.23)
- Go to any page that has an emoji on it. (E.G. https://getemoji.com/)
Emoji should be displayed in color like every other browser.

Brave Version 1.1.23 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88
This issue has been reported multiple times but seems to be ignored.
Here are two threads regarding this issue that were left until they auto-closed due to inactivity:
I would also like to point out that “emoji” on this forum are displayed as png files. They are not rendered as a font like a true emoji. For this reason, troubleshooting this issue by looking at emoji on this forum is pointless. Brave renders png files just fine. However, it does not render emoji.
I have included a screenshot showing from left to right: Brave, Chromium, Firefox.
