Ari Lennox Snaps Back At Snoop Dogg After He Comments On Her Hair

Posted by

Dreamville singer Ari Lennox had an “idols become rivals” moment when she found herself in an Instagram back-and-forth on Wednesday (April 1) with the legendary Snoop Dogg.

Lennox’s struggle-filled wig tutorial made its way onto The Shade Room when Snoop made a swiping comment, “Grow your own hair what happened to those days,” accompanied with a shrug emoji, which also earned a headline post on the gossip page and spurred the ire of Keyshia Cole.

The Shade Butter Baby remixer didn’t take the slight lying down, however. She returned fire via her own Instagram with a photo of Snoop when he donned the caucasian persona “Todd” back in 2014 for some sort of social experiment.

“Uncle I just…I just thought we had an understanding…” she captioned the screenshot.
