Here we go again: another spoiled millionaire hates America.
This time, it’s bite-sized singer Ariana Grande, who was caught on tape saying “I hate Americans. I hate America,” while in a donut shop. The video of the incident (posted below) was published on Tuesday by gossip site TMZ.com, who initially seemed more concerned that Grande was licking the donuts meant to be sold to unsuspecting customers (which, admittedly, is pretty gross). She also dropped an F-bomb over seeing a rack of large donuts, as if she were disgusted with them.
Once readers watched the video and heard what she actually said about America, the backlash was pretty severe. Even celebrity blogger Perez Hilton called her out, tweeting “Unlike @ArianaGrande, I love America and Americans.” Markeece Young scored a nice smackdown, tweeting “We know you hated America by your Hillary endorsement.”
Grande finally got around to apologizing on Wednesday, saying she “extremely proud to be an American” and said, as an advocate for healthy eating, did not mean to be critical or fat shame anyone over her donuts comments. She did not mention her licking other people’s donuts.
Late Wednesday, it was announced that Grande had pulled out of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game concert, and was replaced by Demi Lovato. Grande claims the cancellation was not tied to the incident, but to emergency oral surgery (riiiiiight). Let’s hope this marks the end of this spoiled brat’s 15 minutes. Here’s the TMZ video of the incident:
