Currently, it is very common to replace words or phrases with an emoji that expresses exactly what you want to say. WhatsApp has made its catalog of emojis available to everyone, which makes their real meaning clear, be it happiness, sadness, dream, anger, disappointment, among others, but there are some more whose interpretation is subject to different cultural contexts depending on the environment of the person using them. This is the case of the emoji of a face with a raised eyebrow.
This icon is part of the yellow faces section of WhatsApp, it consists of a yellow face with a flat and neutral mouth with furrowed eyebrows, its left higher than its right. This emoji conveys a wide variety of feelings, including skepticism, suspicion, consideration, concern, disapproval, and disbelief.
It’s worth mentioning that his expression has been significantly compared to the trademark look of comedian Stephen Colbert, including actor / wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The face with a raised eyebrow emoticon was approved as part of Unicode 10.0 in 2017 under the name “Face With One Eyebrow Raised” and was added to Emoji 5.0 in 2017.
