I just updated the IOS, and received my first message and I accidentally clicked the annoying forced something about stickers and now I see 8 annoying stickers on the left in my recent emoji. I have no idea how to get rid of them.

Does Apple have too many people with nothing to do?

They'll be there until Messages gets enough data on your actual emoji usage to give you your own "most recently used" emoji list. Yes, they're annoying. So are traffic, taxes and such. I'm just ignoring them until they go away.

Thanks GH, I had to post, as I have 9 large cartoon stickers as my favorite emojis on extreme left, though I did not put them there. You have the same thing?

And you can't drag them off?

I'm the least conspiracy person, but I have to think there is some sort of sadist at each software company (Excel and Photoshop) comes to mind who sits in a dark corner, rubbing hands together gleefully, thinking these things up....

No, it's a matter of showing off new emojis, nothing more.

They're "unicorns." And they (supposedly) talk. And since I'm not interested in using them, I ignore them...

Thats what I'm being forced to do now, but they are taking the real estate of the most important area of recent.... I don't like them, I never used them once, and that at the full 1/2 screen of my iphone for recent emojis.

Andi, if you wake up in the morning and a trillion dollar company decides that 1/2 your recent emojis are purple horses, unicorns.. well, maybe you have a point there.

Andi, just tested, they don't get overridden, actually they override the section of my favorites, but the stickers I don't want just stay there.
