AceShowbiz - It looks like Ari Fletcher may need to think twice before saying something next time. The social media star has landed in hot water for coming into the defense of white women who get dark tan in an effort to look ethnic.
It all started after a Twitter user called out a group of tanned white women posing for a picture together. In response to the photo, the user said, "im sorry but im tired of this whole aesthetic, i'm tired of looking at mfs who look like this." Noticing what the user said, Ari responded with, "What does this even mean? This is how they look. Black girls go to hard to prove black is beautiful, we know. But don't shatter other women."
People believed Ari was simply missing the point of the user's tweet and pointed out that s/he had enough of white women who tried to look dark merely for aesthetic purpose. However, the girlfriend of MoneyBagg Yo insisted that the white women didn't do anything wrong.
In response to one who told her, "She's talking about white women looking ethnic with tans, thick extensions, etc," she said, "But so what... they grown they can do what they want. That's like white girls getting mad at black girls wearing straight hair."
Her response, naturally, caused more backlash. "Straight hair is genetics, Arianna. Not cultural. I really thought you would understand this. That's sad," one said. Mocking her plastic surgery, another replied underneath her post, "I think the silicon finally reached her brain." Some others said that she should have not said such things and "left this in the drafts," while there were some who told her to delete the post before it's too late.
"Ma'am it's still black history month. Don't do this," someone else said. "Ari I love you but straight hair isn't only a white people thing. Many other races and ethnicities have straight hair and it has no cultural ties to anything...," another wrote. There was also one who told her, "Girl please just sit out these kind of conversations and just twerk."
