How to use loudly crying face emoji

The face is used to express extreme sadness and can therefore be used in practically any sad situation. It’s not uncommon for messengers to just message the face alone in response to something sad. Interestingly enough however, there are some who like to use this face for purposes other than sadness. Imagine a cute bunny - this is the fluffiest bunny you have ever seen and it is gnawing at miniature carrot. This thing is so damn cute in fact - that it’s almost driving you to tears. You could respond to the creature with a Loudly Crying Face, letting the recipient know that you find the creature so insanely adorable it’s making you weep.
