Ariana Grande shut down a fan on social media after he made a critical comment about her appearance in a new music video.
The 22-year-old pop star recently released her Dangerous Woman promo, in which she is featured lounging on a couch in slinky black lingerie while singing about empowerment and seduction.
But a fan called Jonathan disapproved of Ariana’s sultry video, and decided to take to her official Facebook page to give her a piece of his mind, suggesting she looks like a “w**re” in the promo, adding, “sorry for the rudeness, I only just said the truth… SORRY”
The singer took notice of the comment and replied to the critical fan by pointing out how often women are held to a different standard than men, writing, “when will people stop being offended by women showing skin/expressing sexuality? men take their shirts off/express their sexuality on stage, in videos, on instagram, anywhere they want to… all. the. time.
“the double standard is so boring and exhausting. with all due respect, i think it’s time you get your head out of your a**. woman can love their bodies too!!”
Since replying to Jonathan, her comment has garnered nearly 2,000 likes fans.
It isn’t the first time Ariana has fired back at critical social media users – in November (15), she slammed an online body shamer after they cruelly poked fun at the pop star’s thin frame.
She took to Twitter at the time and wrote, “We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy!
“You know what is NOT sexy?,” she continued. “Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!! Talking about people’s body’s as if they’re on display ASKING for your approval/opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!!! CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS”.
