Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty really does stay with the jokes. The hip-hop heavyweight went online this week to share a cringe but hilarious meme of his new hairstyle as the face of Aunt Jemima syrup.

Yachty went to Instagram Tuesday morning and didn’t hold back the humor. Lil Boat shared an epic meme of himself completely replacing the previous look of Aunt Jemima with his own head top.

In late June 2020, multiple companies announced plans to redesign their packaging as a result of the Black Lives Matter movement. Insensitive and racist-looking products including Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben are expected to have revamped designs.
Announcements by the companies that own Aunt Jemima pancake mix, Uncle Ben’s rice, Eskimo Pies ice cream bars, and many others, that they will be “retiring” brand names and visual identities that are considered offensive to many is just one more reminder of how “entangled” brands and consumers have become.

Heading into Monday, Lil Boat went to his Twitter page to face the music. Instead of staying mum, Yachty admitted he didn’t mean for his TikTok clip – which featured him donning a perm – to go out publicly.
“I ain’t gone lie my TikTok was never supposed to get out now that it’s been found I am embarrassed” -Lil Yachty’s Twitter
Wait, There’s More
Heading into Sunday, social media didn’t waste an opportunity to go in on Yachty. People let loose on Lil Boat after he showed the world a first look at his new hairstyle.
Before You Go
This past weekend, Yachty hit up his social media pages to get at President Donald Trump. Instead of getting super deep, Lil Boat simply said he couldn’t give Trump a pass if he went through on a ban of social media giant TikTok.

The Internet lit up everyone’s social media feeds with smoke aimed at Trump. People went at Donald with a slew of epic memes in an effort to make him reconsider ending TikTok for people in the Untied States.
