No one should ever have to explain what they wear. Period. If someone (anyone!) wants to wear a dress, then that person should be allowed to rock the fuck out of that dress without having to endure dumbass jokes. Still, when Yung Joc was photographed rocking the fuck out of a dress earlier this week, some took the opportunity to make disappointing (and yes, dumbass) jokes.

I was going to question why Yung Joc wearing a dress but I remembered he's from Atlanta pic.twitter.com/yjwb5ur4AT
Following those jokes, Joc has addressed the dress in a pair of Instagram videos. A dress, Joc explained, is just "threads." Joc was also well aware of the reaction the photo would get, a reaction he's going to take advantage of ahead of a slew of new TV projects. "It's called internet manipulation," Joc said in the first clip, uploaded Wednesday afternoon. "This is gonna be one of the craziest times ever." Joc added that he's currently on four VH1 TV series.
In the second clip, Joc dug a little deeper into the dumbass comments he's received about wearing a dress. "Get wit' it," Joc advised. "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, then I might look like a motherfucking Roman, 300, Sparta. But that's another case. All I'mma say is, quit being so judgmental, people. It's threads." According to Joc, this will probably be the last time he speaks on this "until the show comes out."
Joc previously manipulated the internet's penchant for knee-jerk reactions in the wake of his 2016 hairstyle. According to Joc, he actually made the majority of the resulting memes himself.
Anyway, wear whatever the fuck you want. Why wouldn't you?
