Where does 🤡 Clown Face emoji come from?
The Clown Face emoji 🤡 was approved under Unicode 9.0 in 2016. The emoji resembles a classic clown’s face with white makeup, a red nose, and two tufts of hair. On most major platforms, the clown has red hair, but the emoji sports blue hair on WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook.
