Ari Lennox has not had the best of times recently. Last year, she was arrested in Amsterdam after she claimed she was racially profiled. Ari received a lot of negative media backlash over the incident. She also isn’t affected by trolls now.
Last month on her birthday, Ari Lennox lamented over the fact that those she thought were close weren’t truly her friends. Nicki Minaj decided to stand up for Lennox.
She is still one of the most beloved singers right now but she continues to face a lot of hate on social media. She became less active on social media after battling against trolls and ongoing negativity.
After a post stating “Ari Lennox is not beautiful” circulated, Ari Lennox took to Twitter and claimed that trolls don’t affect her as Black Twitter has called her ugly for years.
“These trolls are relentless. [Four] months straight they won’t stop bothering me
To all of my beautiful supporters in South Africa I love you dearly. To these weird obsessed evil individuals I pray you get therapy for your obsession of me. Black twitter has been calling me ugly for years. It don’t hurt like it once did.
I recognize beauty standards vary and lots of self hate and oppression can play a big part in that. To my new troll fans there’s not much more you can say.”
We certainly hope times will get better for Ari Lennox as she simply wants to focus on being happy as well as her music career
