Ari Lennox checks troll who compared her black features to that of a “rottweiler”
“People hate blackness so bad.”
Ari Lennox is not tolerating any disrespect towards black women in 2020.
The “BMO” songstress recently checked a Twitter troll that said she and Teyana Taylor had high sex appeal, but looked like rottweilers.
He tweeted, “Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor’s ability to have dangerously high sex appeal while simultaneously looking like rottweilers will always amaze me.” Lennox retweeted his comment and replied, “People hate blackness so bad.”
She then tweeted, “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.”
Fans quickly reminded Lennox of how beautiful she was despite what the Twitter troll had to say. They also began flooding her mentions with photos of their black children, tweeting Lennox that they let their child know how beautiful they are everyday.
This isn’t the first time that Lennox has addressed criticism of her facial features. She recently took to Twitter to call out those who have made negative comments about her nose. She tweeted, “How many times will y’all come for my black nose? It will never tf go anywhere. Y’all are disgusting and the reason people self medicate and get surgery. Just fuckin stop.”
She followed up her tweet by saying, “Also I would never get surgery and I love my nose. I just feel this is a conversation that needs to be had. There are black babies that have insecurities cause culture says it’s funny to insult black features.”
Back in August, Lennox told BuzzFeed that her natural nose made her feel empowered. She said, “Rocking my natural nose, hair, and skin — that makes me feel so empowered, because there’s so many people out there that would rather me not do that. I refuse to change for them. Knowing that I can encourage someone else to rock their natural self really empowers me as well.”
