Your friend just texted you something so dismaying, you have no idea how to react. What words can you say? What is the proper reaction after receiving bad news? Your only option must be to send the frowning face with open mouth emoji. You want to show you are upset and shocked by the news, and words aren’t good enough to express your emotions. Emojis are way better than words to show someone your shock. You might be so shocked, you’re frozen and can’t bring yourself to type! Send a quick emoji and that will say it all!
