Crying Wojak, also called Frustrated Wojak or, more rarely, Angry Wojak or It's Not Fair Wojak, is a variation on the Wojak face, driven to tears and clenching his teeth. It was used by Internet users to express sadness and frustration, on their own behalf or speaking about other people, and has been an inspiration for many other Wojak memes.
The oldest recorded occurrence of a Frustrated Wojak comes from an unsourced Wojak comic dated from late 2014, and which displays the evolution of the Wojak face through the years. In the fourth box of the comic, set into the future, the foreseen character shows physical signs of sadness and anger: additional lines form a frown, his teeth are visible and clenched, his eyes are colored pink as if they were blood-injected, and blue lines symbolize dripping tears and snot.
While the character has been more commonly known as "Crying Wojak" over the years of its existence, there is another Wojak variation called "Crying Wojak", showing the character with his head buried in his hands, which predates it back to 2012.
As many Wojak memes, the Frustrated Wojak had a lot of success on various 4chan boards, where it was often paired with the line "IT'S NOT FAAAAAIIIIIIR". One of its most common usages at the beginning of its existence was in conjunction with the Smug Frog meme in drawings known as Pepe x Wojak, where the memetic characters Pepe the Frog and Wojak interacted, mostly as enemies. The Pepe supporters would often use the Smug Frog to emphasize Pepe's dominance, and the Frustrated Wojak to emphasize Wojak's defeat.
Apart from this usage, this Wojak has also served as an exploitable for many fanarts, created to show various characters in tears as reaction images.
Influence On Other Wojak Memes
The Frustrated Wojak face has often been used in conjunction with other variations of Wojak, to illustrate frustration expressed from specific groups. As such, the Zoomer Wojak, Soyjak, NPC Wojak and Poljak, to name a few, all have their Frustrated version. The Crying Soyjak, particularly, was one of /qa/'s main exploitables.
Masked Crying Wojak
The Masked Crying Wojak (or Wojak Mask) is a variation of the Frustrated Wojak, dating back at least to January 2016, where the Wojak's frustrated face is covered by a mask in order to hide his true feelings. The mask either is round anddisplays the Dorito Face emoticon , or is shaped like a Smug Wojak's face. Occasionally, this meme is subverted and the Smug and Frustrated faces are switched, or other Wojak faces are used for the character and/or their mask, but in most of the early occurrences of this meme, the character is a frustrated one.
Pink Wojak is a 2017 /biz/ variation of Frustrated Wojak which is colored in pink, with a probably yelling opened mouth, widened eyes, and bloody tears. It is used as an edgier, more extreme expression of frustration, to the point of rage.

Yes Chad, also known as Nordic Gamer, is a 2019 character, displayed as a charismatic person who stands for his personal traits or interests. Although most often facing a Brainlet, a strawman character mocking the other side's stupidity and weakness, he is instead facing a Frustrated Wojak in numerous other occasions, to cash on the stand-alone position of the Chad in spite of the authority, the majority's opinion, or a particular group's opinion as in Gab's anti-porn memes. This set-up lately led to another similar meme, Money Printer Go Brrr, which typically displays a Frustrated Zoomer Wojak and a Boomer Wojak.
