How and When to Use the 🤷‍♂️ Man Shrugging Emoji

  • If someone’s texting you about something you don’t really pay much heed to generally, you can use 🤷‍♂️ in the response texts.
  • You can also use 🤷‍♂️ as a way of saying “I don’t know what you’re talking about”.
  • If someone’s been asking you about something you’re either unsure of or just have no idea about it whatsoever, you can use 🤷‍♂️.
  • 🤷‍♂️ can also be used in any context that involves the “I don’t know” phrase.
  • If you’re disinterested in the topic that’s going on in your chats, you can use 🤷‍♂️ as a neutral response (hopefully, the other person would get that you couldn’t care any less).
  • You could bring the 🤷‍♂️ emoji into your captions while posting about something cringy and unimaginable that happened.
  • However, sometimes, the 🤷‍♂️ emoji might come off as a disrespectful gesture (both on text and in real life). So, use it only with people who you think might be okay with that emoji and gesture.
