This is NOT the way to kick off 2020…
Another day, another idiot on social media making insensitive comments about the appearance of a Black woman. It’s an all too common occurrence, however, it’s a new year, nay decade, and we’re done taking this ish! And in this instance, Ari Lennox is the queen we’re coming to the rescue for.
Just yesterday, a Twitter user brazenly compared singers Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor to Rottweilers in a veiled compliment about their sexiness.
Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor's ability to have dangerously high sex appeal while simultaneously looking like rottweilers will always amaze me

The tweet got the attention of Lennox who posted a video in tears over why Black men continuously degrade Black women.
This honestly hurt to watch. Some of you black men have to do better or just shut up. pic.twitter.com/ihyCxq3d4Q

Thankfully, throngs of Twitter users had her back — as we ALL should!
Ari Lennox will unfortunately always be a target for disrespect because she’s a confident young Black woman that’s intentional on using her platform to make other Black women feel seen and she’s vocal about her feelings.
Protect her at all costs.

Ari Lennox is 100% correct black people are the only people who tear down their own race. NEVER have I ever seen a Hispanic man tear down a hispanic women based upon her her looks, NEVER have I ever seen a white man tear down white women. It’s fucking disgusting love your people

Ari Lennox is just another example of how y’all think you can harrass celebrities on a daily basis & think they’re gonna be okay. They are humans. She is a person. Celebrity isn’t a protective shield.

Don’t talk about Ari Lennox nose, don’t talk about P from QC nose, don’t talk about Jay-Z nose…leave all black features on all black people alone

This Ari Lennox/Teyana Taylor situation just reminds me that a new year don’t mean shit when y’all still sitting around allowing the level of slander y’all allow to come against black women.
And if you don’t see a problem with the Rottweiler comment, unfollow & block me k thx.

Ari Lennox being upset over how black women are consistently being tore down is another reason that she is a treasure because not only does she speak her mind and is authentically herself but she speaks on issues that most celebrities would stay quiet on because of the “backlash”

Ari Lennox should be trending cause of her bomb ass music and just being a Black woman in general, not cause of some clown shit being shared and RT’d.
and we are the problem—when you engage with problematic content, you increase the likelihood that others will too.
