A friendly, cartoon-styled face of a monkey, looking straight ahead. Depicted as a brown-haired monkey with a tan or pinkish face, round ears, nostrils, and open-mouthed grin.

As with the full-bodied 🐒 Monkey, often used with a playful tone or for metaphorical senses of monkey.

One of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Available as an Apple Animoji.

Vendors implement the same or similar monkey face in their Three Wise Monkeys emojis: 🙈 See-No-Evil Monkey, 🙉 Hear-No-Evil Monkey, and 🙊 Speak-No-Evil Monkey.

Facebook’s monkey previously resembled 🐻 Bear Face.

This emoji is considered racist in some contexts, particularly when used to disparage, insult, and abuse people with dark skin, especially Black people.
