Rihanna has reportedly cut Ari Fletcher’s Savage x Fenty ambassador brand deal after she made disturbing comments about domestic violence on a recent podcast. Brooklyn’s World speaks on the situation below.
In a recent interview the Fox Soul’s “Cocktail Queens”, featuring LisaRaye McCoy, Vivica Fox, Claudia Jordan, and Syleena Johnson, the celebrities sat down to discuss a range of issues, including controversial domestic violence comments of Ari Fletcher and the subsequent reaction of Savage X Fenty.
The question was asked whether Savage X Fenty had made the right decision by dropping Fletcher from the lingerie brand in which McCoy and Fox did not hold back as they noted that as an influencer, Ari Fletcher failed to live up to her social responsibility.
LisaRaye called the comments by Fletcher about wanting her man to pull his gun on her “out of line and out of place.” Fletcher, while on the ‘Don’t Call Me White Girl’ podcast two weeks ago, was asked about her toxic traits in a relationship, and while speaking about her current relationship with rapper Moneybagg Yo, she said she wanted her man to react violently if she acts out and threatens to leave the relationship.
The 26-year-old Instagram model was immediately called out for glorifying domestic violence, and she later appeared to lose her Savage X Fenty endorsement deal. It’s not the first time the brand, owned by Rihanna who is a former domestic violence victim, has acted to remove a celebrity who glorified domestic violence. Draya Michelle also suffered the same faith in 2018.
