A person shrugging their shoulders to indicate a lack of knowledge about a particular topic, or a lack of care about the result of a situation.
Displays as raised shoulders, sometimes in conjunction with raised arms and flat hands. The shrug gesture in text (emoticon) form is known as the shruggie and typed as: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Person Shrugging was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 under the name “Shrug” and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016.
The Shrug emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.
Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
