Ari Lennox's shady Twitter game has made her unpopular on the South African Twitter streets. Peeps blasted the star after she slammed Mr Smeg for complimenting her.
It all started when local Twitter influencer Mr Smeg took to the micro-blogging site to praise the Set Him Up singer. He said the singer is beautiful and he is a huge fan of her music. He wrote:
"Hey @AriLennox, you are beautiful, and I love your music. When are you coming to South Africa?"

Lennox responded by saying she is not coming to South Africa, and Bucwa's entire existence is disgusting. She wrote:
"No thanks, Smegma! Your entire existence is nauseating."
"It’s not worth my job. It’s not worth the tons of opportunities happening."
Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, Michael Bucwa said Lennox's mean tweets did not move him, rather he felt sad for her. He said:
"I felt sad for her. She is probably going through a lot."
Steve Hofmeyr under fire from LGBTQ+ community for homophobic remarks on Disney programmes
Briefly News previously reported that singer Steve Hofmeyr has landed in hot water for his homophobic remarks. The Afrikaans singer was called out by the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) for comments he made on social media.
In a now-deleted tweet, Hofmeyr took a swipe at Disney for creating content that accommodates members of the LGBTQ+ community. According to The South African, the singer's comments, which are in contravention of the equality act, were posted earlier this month. He said:
“While my generation learned to speak to mice, ducks and dogs, our children will be taught how to have sex with mice, ducks and dogs."
