UPDATE 7/8: Ariana Grande released the following statement today in response to the controversy saying:
"I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country. 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 one of 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 have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better. 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."
Demon whisperer Ariana Grande was recently caught on camera licking donuts and laughing maniacally while doing so, as can be witnessed in this TMZ video. What a truly demonic child. The pop star took a snack break at Wolfee Donuts (in Lake Elsinore, Calif.) but instead of buying donuts and eating them like a normal person, she decided to sneakily lick them and leave them be—perhaps awaiting some poor, unsuspecting soul to catch cooties. She also spreads her cooties to her boyfriend-slash-backup dancer, Ricky Alvarez, whom she kisses amidst all this donut licking. (WHAT ARE YOU DOING ARIANA?)
Best part is, when presented with a fresh batch of unlicked donuts, Ariana can be heard saying, "What the fuck is that? I hate Americans. I hate America. That's disgusting."
