A shocked face with a wide open mouth and wide open eyes. The face seems to be gasping in shock or surprise. Not to be confused with Face with Open Mouth, which does share the same surprised expression - but doesn’t share the same intensity. Also known as the Gasping Face or Shocked Face. This is one of the examples of an emoji that greatly differs per platform - some platforms depicting the eyes as two crosses as if dead. Previous iterations of the emoji even portrayed that the face was drunk.
