Wait! What? To justify her statement, she then said, “I’m not saying that women should be hit, but sometimes b*tches need to be slapped.” Very nonchalantly, she admitted to being slapped before. When asked what she’d done to get slapped–assuming there’s actually a good enough reason–she replied, “You know, my mouth is kind of reckless sometimes.” Another enthusiastic and assured “absolutely!” followed when she was asked if she felt as though she deserved it. In utter shock, I watched the rest of the interview but couldn’t really digest it because I was still trying to swallow her thoughts regarding domestic violence.
Did you see the interview? Watch it below. Skip to about the 10:40 mark for Ariane’s opinion on domestic abuse in regards to K. Michelle and Memphitz.
I get that there are some crazy, ruthless ladies and gents out here, but unless you are put in a life or death situation and forced to defend yourself for survival, there’s never an acceptable reason to physically harm another human being—regardless of gender. “…My mouth is kind of reckless sometimes” is certainly not grounds for “b*tches needing to be slapped!”
Though Ariane’s thinking disturbs me, I accept the fact that she’s a grown woman and entitled to her own views—regardless of how outrageous I think they are. What stirs me up though is that she so comfortably and immaturely voiced them on the #1 urban radio morning show in the country. I support people verbalizing their thoughts, but some things are just better left unsaid.
Reality stars are like the new celebrity (I know, I know. It pains me to admit too). Though not a household name, Ariane has nearly 50,000 Twitter followers as of now so it’s safe to assume that she has solid, little fan base going on. With so many impressionable youngsters glorifying the life of reality TV stars, sending the message that it’s “okay” if a person physically violates them is irresponsible and dangerous.
