how is it possible to eliminate emojis using python

I have a txt file with a JSON format of tweets that I have received from twitters api. When using python, symbols are used to identify emoticons. Is there a way to remove them?

thanks guys my code is:

import json
import re

with open (& # 39; 5.txt & quot;) as json_data:
data = json.load (json_data)
for r in the data['results']:

r['text'] = r['text'].replace (& # 39 ;, & # 39;) & # 39;) .replace (& # 39; & # 39;), & # 39;); ("###, ###) .replace (& # 39; & # 39;) & # 39; & # 39;)
print (r['text'].encode ("utf-8"))
