Colbert is a talentless D-bag and the Left wing morons that he represents are a cancer to society. Can't wait for his inevitable self-destruction.

Go watch Alex Jones and leave. He's concerned the water is "turning the frogs gay!!!"

It's really just a "people's eyebrow," I don't see how it's specifically tied to Colbert. And considering we already have an emoji for a love hotel, I'm pretty sure nothing is too vague.

It's probably because that is an expression he often used in advertising and such, and it's tied to his old character on his previous show. They may be referring to it as such, because if I recall correctly he launched a campaign to have himself included. But I think he was joking at the time.

I'm not sure why the raised eyebrows should be tied to Colbert when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was known for doing it for many, many years before Colbert came on the scene.

True, but Colbert campaigned for it.
