๐Ÿฆ Gorilla

Emoji Meaning

A gorilla, the powerful, black-haired great ape. Variously depicted in full profile on all fours facing left or as a friendly, cartoon-styled gorilla face looking straight ahead.

Most platforms' designs depict a full gorilla, as a silverback, with strong shoulders and reddish forehead. Twitter’s designs feature a black and gray gorilla face with a neutral expression and prominent forehead and jaw.

Google, Samsung, and Facebook’s designs previously featured only a gorilla face.

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

Gorilla was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016.
