A yellow face screaming in fear, depicted by wide, white eyes, a long, open mouth, hands pressed on cheeks, and a pale blue forehead, as if it has lost its color. Its expression evokes Edvard Munch’s iconic painting The Scream.
While intended to represent horror and fright, it commonly conveys such feelings as shock, awe, disbelief, and intense excitement, as a screaming fan.
Samsung’s design previously featured a ghost flying from its mouth. 🙀 Weary Cat Face bears a similar expression.
Face Screaming in Fear was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
