😬 Grimacing Face

A grimace emoji, showing bared teeth, usually for when a mistake or unfavorable situation has arisen – aka “eek!” The appearance of this emoji varies greatly between platforms. Use with caution.

On Snapchat, this emoji next to a friend denotes that you send the most snaps to the same person that they do. i.e. you share a #1 Best Friend.

Not to be confused with the Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes emoji, which looks similar on Apple devices.

Grimacing Face was approved as part of Unicode 6.1 in 2012 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
