However, there weren’t any updates from her, her team or Amsterstam authorities since she posted about her alleged arrest on November 29, 2021 — which prompted fans to ask #WhereIsAriLennox?
Is she back in the states or still in jail in Amsterdam?
#WhereIsAriLennox and #FREEARILENNOX are barely trending.
As of December 4, 2021, she posted:
What’s going on? Why isn’t her team supporting her right to speak her truth? This whole ordeal has been strange — what happened and where is she?
Yet, in 2019 ASAP Rocky’s physical altercation and arrest in Sweden gained national and global coverage. There was a concerted effort to make sure he wasn’t mistreated and got a fair trial abroad. There were consistent status updates and he was quickly released and brought back safely to the United States.
I know that ASAP is a rapper, fashion icon, and arguably more popular than Ari, but she’s still an American artist who deserves the same level of attention as a male counterpart.
Ari’s location, physical and mental status are still unclear. Yet, like most missing Black and brown women in America — mainstream, national and international news outlets find this newsworthy.
