I hate America,” that went viral on the internet, the 22 years old singer released an apology – “I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my county.”
The footage also caught Ariana Grande and her new man Ricky Alvarez, “licking and spitting” on donuts before putting them back on the counter and buying a bunch for themselves. Joe Marin, owner of Wolfee Donuts told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY – “Yes, I’m upset. We sold those by accident to other people and didn’t catch it until hours later.”
In the long apology statement that Ariana Grande released she explained how her words were “taken out of context”. Grande cite her advocacy for eating healthy and how America’s child obesity rate frustrates her.
