Ari Lennox: Singer Snaps on Anti-Black Trolls for ‘Tearing Down Black Women’ [VIDEO]

*Ari Lennox had to get a Twitter troll right together after he said the singer and Teyana Taylor have “dangerously high sex appeal” but look like dogs.

“Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor’s ability to have dangerously high sex appeal while simultaneously looking like Rottweilers will always amaze me,” the Twitter user wrote on January 1.

The songstress responded to the mean tweet with “People hate blackness so bad.”

She added, “Moms and Dads please love on your beautiful black children. Tell them they’re beautiful constantly. Tell them Black people are beautiful. Tell them black features are beautiful.”

Taylor also chimed in to co-sign Lennox, replying “no lies detected.”

When Lennox appeared on Instagram Live, she questioned why folks are “so comfortable tearing Black women down?”

“I’m not with it, how people hate Black people so much. How Black people can sit up here and say, ‘It’s not my problem’ or ‘She does look like a Rottweiler.’ That’s fine. And you want to talk about how people are so sensitive, they want to cancel freedom of speech. Why is that your speech? Why are you so comfortable tearing down Black women and no other race?,” she says in the video. Peep the clip below. 

“Look around! When are Hispanic women ever compared to dogs? When do they do that? When do they do that to white women? When are white men doing that to white women? When are Hispanic men doing that to Hispanic women? They’re not doing it,” she continued.

“I made this Live because I want people to know I really do love myself. I love my nose,” Lennox said. “I love Black features. I want us to get to a point where we are becoming aware of the self-hate sometimes, when you are referring to Black women as a dog. Because we’re not doing this to other races. Or to races of women who don’t have a nose like this.”

Fans responded in the comments with support and offered words of encouragement, in the same way they did back in November when Lennox went on a Twitter rant about being snubbed at the 2019 Soul Train Awards. 

“Tired of being annoying tired of being annoyed. I just ain’t built like the rest of them. This shit ain’t for me… It’s clear I’m not ‘cool’ enough,” she tweeted. “Not trendy enough and I don’t care to be. I don’t strive for that. I’m not going to chase this shit ever again. No more fake shit on my part… It’s not just the awards. SBB was slept on in so many ways. Im too emotional to pretend like I can play this game.”
