American Pop star Ari Lennox angry at MacG’s rude and explicit questions

By Sihle Mkhize

American singer Ari Lennox no longer wants anything to do with South Africa. She says she will not be doing interviews nor visiting South Africa anytime soon. 

This follows an interview with controversial podcaster MacG (Macgyver Mukwevho).

Ari Lennox says she was ticked off by podcaster MacG’s ‘distasteful and predatory questions’ during a recent interview.

During a recent episode of the host’s Podcast and Chill, MacG questioned Ari about her sex life.

MacG surprised the singer by his straight forward line of questioning which some people have found to be offensive. 

He asked the Pop singer: “Is someone fucking you good right now?”

Ari was visibly shocked by the question, and expressed that she didn’t appreciate MacG’s explicit phrasing.

“Oh my God,” she said. “That’s a wild question. Why ask it that way? Whoa.”

On Friday, the singer addressed the incident in a series of now-deleted tweets, saying: “I just feel ambushed and blind sighted. Just because I happily and freely sing/write about sex doesn’t warrant any kind of creepy disrespect. 

“I clearly was in immense shock and hate that I didn’t react differently … never in my life have I been asked such a distasteful and predatory question. 

“Regardless of what the hell I wrote, doesn’t give you losers the right to justify the disrespect,” she responded in part to one Twitter user, who suggested that she was only caught off guard because she did not write the lyrics to the song.

Last year the podcast was impaired by controversy after being dropped by two major sponsors early in the year, following the hosts’ “harmful and offensive” remarks about the LGBTQI+ community.

Later that year, Amstel withdrew its sponsorship after grossly offensive remarks about a transgender woman were made by the hosts during an episode. 

In December, Amanda du Pont made several shock revelations in response to allegations made by Jub Jub (Molemo Maarohanye) on an episode that aired on Channel O. 

The TV personality accused the musician of rape and murder. Following the revelation, more women have come forward and accused Jub Jub of sexual misconduct. 

Jub Jub has since apologised for the lewd comments and inappropriate language he used in the episode.
