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.

Apple, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Microsoft’s designs feature a full gorilla, as a silverback, with strong shoulders and reddish forehead. Google, Samsung, and Twitter’s designs feature a black and gray gorilla face with a neutral expression and prominent forehead and jaw.

Facebook’s design previously featured only a gorilla face.

This emoji is considered racist in some contexts, especially 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.
