Singer Ari Lennox trended online on Thursday after she responded to a fan who compared her and other female artists to rottweilers.
“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.
Ari has had enough of people downing her for her beautiful, Black features and hopped on the internet to check the troll.
“I’m not f*cking with that sh*t,” Ari said, “how people hate Black people so much, how Black people can sit up here and say, ‘That’s not my problem.’ Or, ‘She does look like a rottweiler.’ And you want to talk about, ‘Oh, people are so sensitive, they want us to cancel freedom of speech.’ Why is this your speech?”
Her video sparked a plethora of impassioned responses from Black Twitter, who recognize that colorism is very much alive in the Black community.
