Ari Lennox was at a loss for words after being asked out on a date while on Instagram Live.
The Washington D.C. native was explaining to her fans how she was at a movie theater by herself thinking of her "got damn love life," before she was startled by a question from LaKeith Stanfield in her comments.
"No date — nothing. Just sitting there shedding tears thinking of my got damn love life and how it's exceedingly nonexistent. How it's just a pitiful mess," the singer said.
Stanfield, however, popped up with a solution to her dating problems.
"Can you be my date? Let's go," the actor posted in her comments.
Taken aback, the "BMO" singer started to mumble over her words.
"LaKeith I don't have time for this right now 'cause I...wait you're joking. I don't have...no," she said.
"We're changing the subject because I heard some things," she continued.
Fans in her comments caught on to the awkwardness of the moment while others encouraged her to take advantage of the actor shooting his shot.
"Snatch him up Ari," one person wrote.
"She blushinggg," another person commented.
"Give my dawg a shot," someone else said.
People also chimed in on Twitter.

After brushing off Stanfield's question, she quickly turned the camera around and began to awkwardly show off her music equipment that she recently purchased.
"OK, so you guys I started a studio. I went to Guitar Center and I got me a speaker. I got me a got damn guitar," she said.
The singer continued to ramble about a keyboard, mic and stand she bought before forgetting her words.

"F**k Gayle and f**k Oprah. Y'all are some self-hating pieces of sh*t f**k a*ses," she said.
She later apologized, saying she's not the "most structured" when she talks and has "grown too comfortable" with viewing her fans as her best friends.
