New York, NY – It takes ample amounts of courage to confront bullying head-on, especially on a public platform such as Twitter. But Ari Lennox took action earlier this month after she and Teyana Taylor were targeted for their looks, admitting being labeled a “Rottweiler” was hurtful.

“You wanna talk about how people are so sensitive they want us to cancel freedom of speech,” she said in part. “Why is this your speech? Why are you so comfortable tearing down black women?” 

Rather than see that as a sign of strength, the always outspoken Joe Budden decided to label Lennox “insecure” during a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. 

“Does anything about the Ari Lennox thing scream insecurity to you?” he said. “Insecurity. How you feel about you versus how what people feel about you versus how what people feel about you does to how you feel about you. Insecurity. And while there may be variations of it or different reasons of why it stems, insecurity is insecurity.”

Budden’s comments weren’t well received. Twitter instantly pounced on the Slaughterhouse vet and called his assessment of the situation “disgusting.”
