Nat comment on Operation Unz̖̬̜̺̬a͇͖̯͔͉l̟̭g͕̝̼͇͓̪͍o̬̝͍̹̻, when copy-pasted, looks like:

@L.F. Too late... ...far too late... Too late... ...far too late... Too late... ...far too late... Too late... ...far too late... Too late... ...far too late... Too late... ...far too late... Too late... ...far too late...

But visually, it has a red color rendering on Chrome 75 on macOS: enter image description here

What is the reason for this? Unicode can change the color of the text? Or is there a CSS/JS issue?

Note that I can't even easily reach the flag button for this comment, as it's covered by the text itself: enter image description here

It's actually a MathJax formula, not a Unicode issue. The source of the MathJax formula gives us:

\def\x#1{\smash{\rlap{\hskip{-10em}\style{transform-origin: center middle; display: inline-block; transform: rotate(#1deg); padding: 3em}{\huge{\color{red}{~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\text{Too late...}~\text{...far too late...}}}}}}} \def\y#1{\x{#1}\x{-#1}} {\y{10}\y{25}\y{40}\y{70}}

To see this raw form and to get access to the surrounding buttons (like the flag button), you can change the renderer of MathJax with a right click and choose "Plain Source": enter image description here

And it will show in plain text, giving you access to all the surrounding buttons: enter image description here

Clicks on the delete button worked just fine... Next time, flag the post for moderators to delete the comment.
