A fan recently talked about Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor’s looks on Twitter, and Lennox had time to respond.

“Ari Lennox and Teyana Taylor’s ability to have dangerously high sex appeal while simultaneously looking like rottweilers will always amaze me,” the fan tweeted, although it’s hard to be a fan of an artist whose looks you’d openly disrespect.

“People hate blackness so bad,” Lennox replied.

Lennox went on to address parents, telling them to “please love on your beautiful black children,” prior to tweeting that “black women” are “literally the most disrespected period.”

The “Shea Butter Baby” singer also took to Instagram Live to further address the issue.

“I’m not with it. I’m not with it at all. How people hate black people so much. How black people can sit here and say that’s not my problem or she does look like a rottweiler,” Lennox said.

“You want to talk about how people are so sensitive. Why is this your speech? Why are you just so comfortable tearing down black women and no other race? Look around. When are Hispanic women ever compared to dogs? When do they do that? When are white men doing that to white women?… They’re not. And how come as a black woman, whose sticking up, I’m Azealia [Banks]?”
