This worked well until I ran into modifiers, where this snippet wrapped both the source emoji + modifier separately. I found this snippet that supported wrapping emojis w/ modifiers:

const wrapEmoji = (text) => {
    const reEmoji = /\p{RI}\p{RI}|\p{Emoji}(\p{EMod}+|\u{FE0F}\u{20E3}?|[\u{E0020}-\u{E007E}]+\u{E007F})?(\u{200D}\p{Emoji}(\p{EMod}+|\u{FE0F}\u{20E3}?|[\u{E0020}-\u{E007E}]+\u{E007F})?)+|\p{EPres}(\p{EMod}+|\u{FE0F}\u{20E3}?|[\u{E0020}-\u{E007E}]+\u{E007F})?|\p{Emoji}(\p{EMod}+|\u{FE0F}\u{20E3}?|[\u{E0020}-\u{E007E}]+\u{E007F})/gu;
    return text.replace(reEmoji, '<span class="emoji" role="img" aria-hidden="true">$&</span>');
}
