๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Man Shrugging

Meaning

๐Ÿ‘จ Man Shrugging emoji is the picture of the male character, who makes a helpless gesture and raises his shoulders at the same time โ€“ these movements together form a worldly recognized gesture for confusion, misunderstanding, being lost, or helpless. Apparently, this emoji is used exactly in the same meanings, its base-movement is used in real life โ€“ for example, instead of an answer to a too difficult question, as a symbol of not understanding some idea or concept, as well as a symbol of inability to help someone with their troubles.
