Where does ๐Ÿ˜ฉ - weary face emoji come from?

The weary face emoji is the face of someone who looks very upset, featuring closed, crescent-shaped eyes under furrowed brows, representing breaking-point sadness and tiredness, and a slack-jawed frown, as if wailing, "Enough! I quit!"

Theย emojiย debuted in 2010 under Unicode 6.0 and is quite similar in appearance to the tired face emoji, which depicts the same mouth but with more tightly closed, pointed eyes.

Across almost all platforms, the weary face emoji is a yellow smiley with an open mouth showing the upper teeth. Some, like Microsoft and Samsung, include a tongue for added drama.

Who uses ๐Ÿ˜ฉ - weary face emoji ?

People use the weary face emoji when they want to express exhaustion or when having a bad dayโ€”or simply when fed up with life's many frustrations and injustices, big and small.

The emotional range of the weary face emoji is extensive, from hangry cravings to disgust, usually with an undertone of deliberate melodrama or self-deprecation.

The weary face emoji doesn't just characterize negative sentiments, though. It's often used when someone feels overwhelmed with love and pride.

The weary face emoji is often paired with the sweat droplets emoji to intensify whatever emotion is being expressed, though the two of them together often suggests "feeling horny" or "having an orgasm" too ...

As with many crying-faced emoji, the weary face emoji loves to convey uncontrollable laughter, as well.
