Yung Joc Should be Able to Wear a Dress if he Wants to

Spotted: Yung Joc in a floor-length, emerald blue gown, and it seems like the internet just can’t shut up about it. While many were confused and some were supportive, the overall reaction was, surprisingly – or maybe not so surprisingly – very negative.

The ATL rapper, known for his 2006 single “It’s Goin’ Down” and his frequent appearances on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, was spotted in the dress on Tuesday, September 12th, and subsequently “exposed” by internet site The Shade Room.

#YoungJoc let me borrow that dress sis 💅🏽

The internet went crazy, mocking and attacking Yung Joc…all for wearing a dress.

The rapper responded by saying he was “taking full advantage” of “one of the craziest times ever in [his] life”. He went on to say, “At this point in my life, you must watch. I’m currently on four television shows on VH1. You will see me coming up here in October on Scared Famous. After that, I’m pretty sure you’ll probably see me on Leave it to Stevie. Then you’ll probably turn around and see me on Hip Hop Squares and you gonna turn around and see me on possibly Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”

What may have started out as a publicity stunt, however, soon turned into the rapper defending his choice, and calling out those who targeted his masculinity over the posts.

“I knew the type of backlash that would come from this shit. I did,” he admitted. “But let me address one and two things…I had to man up and put on a fucking dress. Get with it. It’s just a thread. It’s just some shit a man made. It’s a thread. It’s nothing. Now if you give me a shield and a spear, and put a goddamn leather metal belt around my waist, I might look like a muthafuckin Roman. 300. Sparta. But that’s not the case. All I’ma say is quit being so judgmental, people. It’s threads.”

Damn. Who knew Yung Joc was so woke?
