Lil Yachty thinks he's "gorgeous."

Lil Yachty says that the reason rappers can be "so angry" is because they're "ugly as f*ck." He teased the hip-hop community in a video circulating on social media while calling himself "gorgeous." "I personally think that rappers are so angry and so mad and so 'grrr' all the time because they're ugly as f*ck," he joked.

Yachty added: "A lot of rappers don't like what they see when they wake up and they realize that they probably only get women because they get money. Me, on the other hand, I'm gorgeous. And, it's like I'm happy, life's great. I got some money, decent looking. I smell great."

Fans overwhelmingly trolled Yachty in response to the video when XXL shared it on Instagram. "Then you must be the angriest rapper alive," one user wrote. One more joked: "The grunt he made sounded like a troll from the hobbit." Another labeled the joke cringe-worthy: "I f*ck with yachty but dude kinda became cringey after him and drake became more close and his artist that he has on his label are not that good."
