This Lingerie Brand Clapped Back at Homophobes in the Best Way

"Nothing is made 'for' any gender, it’s just a garment."

Dancer and influencer Jake DuPree has been known to serve some fierce looks.

In fact, one of his recent posts on his Instagram account where he donned a sexy AF red lingerie set was such a good look...

...Playful Promises, the lingerie brand that created the set DuPree was wearing, proudly showed him off on their own Instagram account!

But because we can't have anything nice things in this world without people bringing up outdated and restrictive gender norms and roles, as expected, the comments section was a mess of hate and homophobia.

While there were plenty of messages of support and acceptance in Playful Promises' repost, there were also lots lot of hateful words targeted towards the brand and at DuPree himself. Luckily though, Playful Promises knew exactly how to handle it all with class.

"I would never buy the set now," one commenter said, as pointed out by Twitter user @givemeyourbIood in a now-viral tweet praising the lingerie brand for the expert way it shuts down trolls. "Because I wouldn’t want to be seen in a set made for men, too. This is not attractive at all."

"Were you previously unaware that all garments can be worn by all genders?" Playful Promises said in their response to the comment. "Nothing is made 'for' any gender, it’s just a garment."

As if that wasn't great enough, DuPree also took notice of how supportive the brand was being of him, and he took to Twitter to thank them. 

"You are the absolute best!!!" he wrote. "Thank you for all the love. You are a class act too defending me in the comments."

Take notes, everyone. THIS is how you take care of online homophobes!
