Popstar Ariana Grande has found herself in hot water this week after a video went viral showing her proudly proclaiming, “I hate America.”
The bizarre video shows 22 year-old Grande licking a whole tray of donuts in a donut shop while employees aren’t looking. When more donuts are brought out, Grande can be heard saying “I hate Americans. I hate America.”
According to Conservative Tribune, the donut shop released their security footage to gossip website TMZ, and the backlash was swift.
Soon after the news broke, Grande got some devastating news when the Major League Baseball abruptly dropped her from a July 11 concert in Cincinnati, replacing her with her rival Demi Lovato. Grande quickly released a desperate, albeit pathetic, statement begging for forgiveness.
“What I said in a private moment … was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words,” Grande said, adding that her comments were directed at “how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences.”
Many aren’t buying Grande’s apology, however, and are calling for her to give a more genuine one instead. This is also bad news for Hillary Clinton, as Grande has been an ardent supporter of hers ever since she announced her campaign.
The MLB may have been the first to turn on Grande, but they definitely won’t be the last. This girl had better buckle up, because she’s in for a very bumpy ride!
