In case you missed it, R & B singer Ari Lennox was one of the many celebrities who whipped out their cell phones, turned the camera to selfie mode, and made a video ranting and raving about how wrong and despicable Gayle King was for even mentioning Kobe Bryant’s 2003 rape case in her interview with Lisa Leslie.
The rant was surprising coming from Ari because Ari recently aligned herself specifically with Black women and pointed out how Black men don’t support her in large numbers when other Black men attack her online.
