Ariana Grande Apologizes for Donut Shop Video: 'I Love My Country'

Ariana Grande is apologizing for saying “I hate America” in security camera footage of her visit to a California donut shop that was leaked online this week.

The 22-year-old singer says her comments were taken out of context and that her choice of words was not great.

“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,” Ariana said in a statement. “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.”

    So she’s just going to ignore the fact that she spit on doughnuts and behaved rudely to the employees?

      She’s responding to how the media portrayed it. Billboard has referred to it as an ‘I Hate America’ video rather than as an ‘I licked donuts video.

    Ariana is a disgusting nig lover who hates America.

    She should be deported out of the country and go live in Africa with a continent full of nigs!

    Absolute garbage! She has no value of a human!
