Aries Spears Criticizes Black Women Who Wear Eyelashes In Shameless Plug for New Podcast

This isn’t the first time Spears has made negative remarks about Black women and their appearance.

Aries Spears is in hot water again after the controversial comedian slammed Black women and their makeup choices during an attempt to promote his latest endeavor. 

On Sunday, the former Mad TV star took to Instagram to announce his new podcast while also randomly taking a jab at Black women, arguing that they did not “need” fake eyelashes.

“To all my beautiful Black queens out there, I want you to know from the bottom of my heart, I love you, I respect you, you’re beautiful and you’re mandatory,” the 49-year-old began. “That being said, can some of y’all please for the love of God stop wearing them big fake eyelashes.”

Spears claimed, “You have no idea, are you not aware of how ridiculous that s—t looks?... It looks like you have pterodactyl wings on your face. You don’t need it!”

He continued, “And if you’re not proportioned correctly and you are as skinny as Snoop Dogg it’s just a “horrible look” and likened them to fake Brazilian Butt Lifts “for your face” before concluding his rant with, “Love and respect.”

Social media users showed no mercy, tearing into the Jerry Maguire actor’s comment section with their thoughts on Spear’s appearance, including one online user who wrote, “Well, we don't like your dark discoloration around your eyes and neck. Do you have hypertension, kidney disease, or diabetes?” Another person commented, “I kindly ask you worry about your health instead of what black women are putting on their face. “Why people in the comments say you look like a walking bruise,” a third noted. 

Over on X, formerly known as Twitter, critics called out his attachment to a particular New York Yankees fitted cap he’s often been photographed wearing, including once while in the hospital.

This isn’t the first time Spears has made negative remarks about Black women. In a past interview, the comedian fat-shamed Grammy Award-winner Lizzo when asked about his views on her music and songwriting talents.
