🤷 Meaning: A gender-neutral description of a person with short, side-parted hair, throwing both hands in the air, parallel to the head, and hunching the neck a little.
The 🤷 Person Shrugging emoji signifies a sense of being clueless, confused, shocked, and even amused by someone’s or something’s ridiculous nature. This emoji is available in the designated skin tones on almost all platforms.
How and When to Use the 🤷 Person Shrugging Emoji
- If you’re reacting to something absolutely ridiculous and senseless, you can use 🤷.
- 🤷 can also be used to show confusion – like an attempt to understand what the final plan is over a load of spam on your BFF group.
- If someone’s asking you about something you have no idea of, like if there’s school tomorrow or not, you can use 🤷 to indicate that you’re just as clueless as the person who asked you this.
- 🤷 can also be a way of saying “I don’t know”.
- If you got unexpectedly tangled in a loop of drama just because you lent a listening ear ages ago, you can use 🤷 to show that you know nothing more than what you’re saying.
- 🤷 can also be used to show frustration and maybe even slight anger – like if someone’s repeatedly asking you something, you can throw your hands in the air and go “Who knows 🤷”.
