Lakeith Stanfield Asks Singer Ari Lennox on a Date on Instagram Live!

Lakeith Stanfield and Ari Lennox are looking for love while social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak.

The 28-year-old Atlanta actor took to Instagram Live to ask the singer, also 28, out on a date.

Ari was hosting the Instagram Live while self-quarantining.

While speaking about her love life and sipping on wine, Ari said, “I was just sitting there shedding tears, thinking of my goddamn love life and how its exceedingly non-existent, how it’s just a pitiful mess.”

“Can you be my date? Let’s go,” Lakeith Stanfield wrote in the comments.

Lakeith, I don’t have time for this right now,” Ari Lennox replied, shocked. “Wait, you’re joking…”

“I don’t even know how to say anything right now,” she added.
