Ariana Grande’s so-called apology for being caught saying, ‘I hate America’ and licking donuts in a closed caption video is one of the most bizarre things ever.
The Grammy-nominated artist, who has partnered with Pepsi in the past, insisted she is “EXTREMELY proud to be an American.”
“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,” Grande said. “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,” she continued. “We need to demand more from our food industry.”
Grande concluded saying she “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.”
