ICYMI because you were living under a rock and/or too busy eating non-contaminated doughnuts to notice, Ariana Grande caused outrage yesterday when a video emerged of her licking doughnuts and being kinda rude to staff at Wolfee Donuts shop in California.
Now, however, the pint-size popstar has apologised for saying she ‘hates America’ in the video, claiming she was just angry about America’s eating habits.
Arianators were pretty p*ssed yesterday when the CCTV footage came to light, which showed the 22-year-old licking doughnuts she didn’t intend to buy before encouraging her friends to do the same.
The star’s fanbase were left even more peeved by Ari’s reaction to the server who comes back to the counter with a fresh tray of doughnuts, with the singer snapping: “What the f*ck is that?”
Hanger is dangerous, y’all.
After the video caused uproar online, the pop princess took to Twitter to apologise for and explain her actions, captioning the explantion: “need to clean up this mouth of mine & set a better example for my babes. i apologize and i love you. always learning. [sic]”
She wrote: “I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my county [sic]. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words.
“As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole.
“The fact that the United States has the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry.
“However I should of [sic] known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better.”
Errrr, still doesn’t explain why she decided some doughnuts needed some new fresh saliva-based icing, and we’re kinda sad there’s ear that every pastry/doughnut/cake we now buy may come with an side order of slobber, but okay.
She went on to explain why she had to pull out of a Major League Baseball concert scheduled to take place on Saturday, continuing: “As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show. I hope to make it up to all those fans soon.
“That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.“
So there you go.
