Incorrect string value: ‘xF0x9Fx92x99’ for column “‘comment_body_value'”

Which is the best way to deal with this error in my D7 site:
“Incorrect string value: ‘xF0x9Fx92x99’ for column “‘comment_body_value'”

I read it is about users posting emojis that cannot be handled by drupal/mysql.

I do not care if the comments are being stripped off the emojis, or converted as long as it does not trigger an error to the end-user. The simpler the solution the better.
I found a few modules e.g. Emoji scrub that is unmaintained and not security validated anymore.

Many thanks
