Pleading Face

A yellow face with furrowed eyebrows, a small frown, and large, “puppy dog” eyes, as if begging, pleading, or yearning (possibly even in a NSFW manner, depending on the context). May also represent adoration or feeling touched by a loving gesture.

Huawei's design for this emoji includes a pair of ๐Ÿ™ Folded Hands.

At its peak the Pleading Face was the third most popular emoji used on Twitter, and was the most commonly found emoji in tweets that include hearts. Used in sequence with pointing hands to indicate a bashful or shy pose (๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘ˆ) particularly on TikTok.

Pleading Face was approved as part of Unicode 11.0 in 2018 under the name "Face with Pleading Eyes" and added to Emoji 11.0 in 2018.
