Ari Lennox Calls Out Kanye West in Response to Trump Tweet

June 19, 2019

By Cameron Jenkins

Ari Lennox has made it clear she never holds her tongue. 

So it is no surprise she didn't hold back exactly how she felt when she came across a few tweets from Trump.

Trump shared his plans for ICE tweeting "Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people......" and followed up with "....long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement. The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!" in two consecutive tweets.

Lennox chimed in on the conversation and tweeted "Hey @kanyewest this is the man you love and support so much? The same man who’s white ancestors are illegal immigrants themselves?? Can you please explain?"

The tweet referenced the various times that Kanye West has worn a MAGA hat and had conversations with Trump.

All of those actions prompted confusion and backlash from his fanbase.

However, many seemed to come to his defense calling Lennox a "clout chaser" and saying that including West in her tweet was unneccessary.

"Stop clout chasing by dropping Kanye’s name...it’s played out," @outdoorkell tweeted.

"Clout chaser," @MunkangaKapapa tweeted.

"She didn’t snap at all --she’s missing all the facts, her album isn’t seeing the light of the day, so she needs some headlines," @TreSeanCousins tweeted.

"Of all the political influence one could use, we calling out Ye? ------ is this a joke? A man who is openly bipolar? This is weak I’m sorry," @manimanages tweeted.

Others decided to stan.

"a true leader, go Ari!" @almaxesmeralda tweeted.

"I stan a queen who gonna check people when they're wrong," @deepdimps_ tweeted.

"Call him out sis," @JusthadDEJAvu tweeted.
