Ariana Grande was under a lot of stress when she opted against using common sanitary sense and licked display doughnuts at Wolfee Donuts last Fourth Of July. The soprano singer, who revealed her disdain for America, also mistreated an on-duty donut shop employee. According to her sh*tty apology, released on HollywoodLife, her deep concerned with child obesity attributed to her behavior. Girl, what?

Ariana’s rep issued this statement,

“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 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 we put in 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 recover 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.”

In case you haven’t seen the disgusting video (see it below), Ariana acted more like a spoiled brat than a concerned American. Her behavior was shameful and embarrassing.

A police investigation has been opened around the “malicious licks.” While that’s a little more drastic than we would hope for a punishment (we’d settle for a good ole fashion spanking), it’s interesting to see how celebs behave when they think no one is watching.

Big Sean definitely dodged a bullet.
