Ariana Grande caught licking donuts and dissing USA because of childhood obesity

All day Wednesday I kept seeing some headline about Ariana Grande uttering disparaging comments about America. I didn’t really give it a second thought, because Ariana Grande doesn’t tend to occupy much of my brain space (unless I’m listening to “Bang Bang,” I LOVE that song).

But then I saw some headline about her licking donuts and I was all in.

Here’s the upshot, Ariana Grande was caught on security camera at a donut shop in Lake Elsinore making out with her boyfriend, Ricky Alvarez when a worker at the donut shop presented a tray of donuts. The singer replied, “What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America.” At another point in the video, you see her licking a couple of the powdered donuts that were sitting out before being put in the display case.

WHAT? How old are you Ariana Grande?

And if you hate America so much because of donuts, what are you doing in a donut shop in the first place picking out $5 worth of donuts? (Also, is it donuts? Or doughnuts? Whatever.)

Check out this news report of the incident (yes, an actual NEWS report).

Ariana Grande’s apology notes that she was sorry for calling out America, but she was trying to make a point about obesity. “I’ve always made it clear that I love my country, 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 thoughts to the consequences that it has on our health.” Grande further noted that it “frustrates” her to know that child obesity is so common in the U.S., and she thinks “we need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating.”

Meanwhile, Rob Lowe has responded via social media that her apology is lame.
