AceShowbiz - Ari Lennox had the perfect response to Snoop Dogg's shade at her over a video of her struggling to put on a wig. The "What's My Name?" rapper weighed in on the R&B star's hairstyle choice, telling her in the comment of the video posted on The Shade Room's Instagram account, "Grow your own hair what happened to those days."
Not losing her sense of humor, the 29-year singer reminded the 48-year-old Long Beach artist of his similar style in the past. She posted a throwback photo of Snoop donning a blonde bob-style piece as his white man alter ego, Todd. She captioned the image, "Uncle I just...I just thought we had an understanding..."
People on Twitter also had Ari's back, slamming Snoop for seemingly telling a woman what to do with her hair. Some commenters called his advice demeaning, uninformed and downright sexist, with one writing, "Imagine trying to pull the "grow your own hair" rhetoric to Ari Lennox, lol. Snoop Dogg should stfu."
"I love snoop but he def got Ari messed up," another commented. "poor thing is misinformed because she not bald headed, she's natural hair goals af." A third user was also not having it, tweeting, "I got love for Snoop but get him tf outta here, pack it."
"Stop defending these n***as that don't defend y'all," read another comment." Someone else similarly added, "This is how you know Snoop don't even KNOW who Ari Lennox is, cuz Ari has a WHOLE AFRO of natural hair. She’s prolly worn wigs 3x TOPS, another pointed out. Defending a man who wouldn't even keep scrolling for you."
In the hilarious video, Ari narrated along as she tried out a lacefront wig. "So I guess I gotta cut more lace?" she said as she struggled to put it on properly before a viewer suggested she get a wig cap. "Where am I suppose - WHERE AM I SUPPOSED TO GET A WIG CAP?" she said after realizing her mistake.
