Ari Lennox Says ‘Black Twitter Has Been Calling Me Ugly For Years’ As She Calls Out Social Media Trolls

Ari Lennox is calling out people who troll her on social media!
R&B singer Ari Lennox, 31, took to Twitter on Wednesday (Apr.13) to address the negative comments she’s been receiving on social media. She started off her series of tweets by addressing the mean comments people have said about her looks. In a now-deleted tweet, Ari Lennox wrote,
“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, theres not much more you can say.”

Ari Lennox continued and seemingly called out South African social media influencer Mr Smeg for previously making rude remarks about her. She wrote,

“These trolls are relentless. 4 months straight they won’t stop bothering me. To all 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.”

The “Pressure” singer later deleted her tweets but added another message for her haters. She tweeted,

“F this. Some folks will choose to remain stupid. I hope everyone has a beautiful day.”

When a fan shared that they wish Ari Lennox did not delete her previous tweets, the singer replied,

“It’s not worth my job. It’s not worth the tons of opportunities happening.”

This isn’t the first time Ari Lennox has spoken out about the negative side of social media. Back in January, the “Up Late” singer said social media is “traumatizing.” She wrote,

“sm [social media] is a traumatizing unhealthy place. You are only accepted here if your perfect and seemingly happy at all times. When every single life knows that’s not realistic. People cry, people complain, people are mad in real life. I just never cared to be a fake *ss b*tch.”
