Ariana Grande may hate Americans but Comedian Joel McHale hates her ponytail! The popstar has been getting lots of negative attention since she was caught licking counter-top donuts and saying she hates Americans, and now, Joel is offering his hilarious two cents about #DonutGate — see exactly what he said!
Joel McHale, 43, blasted Ariana Grande, 22, on July 10th’s episode of The Soup when he was discussing the hot topic of Donut Gate! Joel was so amused by Ariana’s words and actions — the fact that she licked donuts, put them back on the counter and then proceeded to say she hates Americans was so funny to him that he decided to say what he hates, which just happens to be Ariana’s famous ponytail! You must watch the whole clip below!
In Joel’s exact words to Ariana: “I hate your ponytail, but you don’t see me ruining pastries over it!” So funny, right?! In case you’re a bit lost as to what he’s talking about, Ariana made some waves over the Fourth of July weekend was she was caught on surveillance video doing some questionable things at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, CA! Not only was she caught licking donuts and putting them back on the counter, but it was when an employee brought out a tray of huge doughnuts that Ariana said, “What the f–k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America,” which did not sit well with her fans. To hear more about Ariana Grande and #donutgate, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
Ariana has since released two apologies, one of which she wrote, “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.” But it looks like Joel and the rest of her fans aren’t quite ready to move on from this hilarious story!
