LisaRaye commented on the news that Fenty brand boss Rihanna fired Ari Fletcher for making inappropriate remarks online.
Ari angered domestic abuse victims when she made light of her boyfriend, rapper MoneyBaggs Yo, putting a gun to her head if she tried to leave him.

When social media users protested, Ari allegedly told one follower, "We don't care, you're ugly. You don't have a man who wants to pull out a gun on you."

Rihanna promptly handed Ari her walking papers and cancelled her corporate credit card.
Chatting with the ladies of Fox Soul's Cocktail Queens, actress LisaRaye agreed with Rihanna's decision.
"Shout out to Rihanna for standing up and being an example of a woman of her word and making sure that her brand is not tarnished with any foolishness," LisaRaye said.
"It's levels to this... it's respectable. People respect you. Now you can have your opinion. But even when you have your opinion, you gotta wait until you get to a certain level to be able to be heard because we've seen the history of your words."
LisaRaye said she hopes Ari apologizes to domestic violence victims.
Actress Vivica A. Fox suggested Ari's termination will have a domino effect on her career -- though it isn't clear exactly what Ari does for a living.
"Once a big one drops you, they all start to drop you," Vivica said.

Rihanna fired Instagram model and influencer Ariana "Ari" Fletcher as Savage X Fenty brand ambassador after she made inappropriate comments in a podcast.
The Fenty Brand boss took offense to Ari saying a man would have to pull a gun on her to keep her from leaving him.
As you know, Rihanna was a domestic violence victim at the hands of abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

Ari is best known as girlfriend of rapper MoneyBagg Yo and posting scantily clad photos on her Instagram page.
This is one of the few rare images on her page that shows her fully clothed.
According to reports, Ari went viral in December after she appeared on a podcast, where she spoke about her dysfunctional relationship with MoneyBagg.
She admitted they had a toxic relationship and she admired a thug who would pull a gun out on her if she tried to leave him.
"Like, pull your gun out and show me like, 'b*tch leave, I wish you would walk out the door,'" she said.
"I'm going to just sit down because I got a son and I'm not trying to die – I got a son. So I'm only staying because I got a son and I don't want you to shoot me."
Ari responded to the public backlash in an immature and disrespectful manner.
"Y'all find the negative sh*t in everything and try to blow it up," she said. "I was exaggerating, nobody want a gun pulled on them. Please STFU."
She tweeted: "I got so much power over the internet that it's scary."
Rihanna was appalled and dumbstruck when she heard Ari's comments. She unceremoniously dropped Ari as her brand ambassador.
