Lil Yachty can’t catch a break. Even though the QC artist had a strong 2016 between his breakout Lil Boat mixtape and being featured on D.R.A.M.’s platinum-selling/Grammy-nominated hit single “Broccoli,” it’s been open season on the “1 Night” rapper all year, with recent spats flaring up between him and Soulja Boy and then Funk Master Flex.
The Atlanta native did redeem himself in the eyes of one of his biggest critics though, the once-stern Ebro, who began to show some respect after Yachty spoke with him on his Beats1 show and dropped a freestyle to Craig Mack’s “Flava In Ya Ear” instrumental.
Just when we thought Yachty might stay out of the headlines for the last two weeks of 2016, he pops up again by trading in his crimson-beaded braids for short locks. And yes, social media showed no mercy.
Check out some of the best memes inspired by The Sailing Team captain’s new look.

Still though, the ridicule over his hair isn’t really anything new.
