Remember when Ariana Grande made offensive comments about Americans and their weight? The pop star still feels awful about her words and during a new interview on GMA, she apologized yet again — see what she said this time!
Just when you thought #Donutgate was over, Ariana Grande, 22, has apologized again for offending many of her fans when she said “I hate Americans” on July 4. When the singer stopped by GMA on September 15, she explained that she’s learned from her mistakes — watch the interview!
“My behavior was very offensive and I apologized,” Ariana told GMA. “There’s no excuse or there’s nothing to justify it. I think that as human beings we all say and do things that we don’t mean at all sometimes and we have to learn from it, I mean, it’s part of our process. We have to learn from our mistakes and that’s how we grow.”
“I think one of the biggest things I learned from that was what it feels like to disappoint so many people who love and believe in you. And that’s an excruciating feeling… You have to remember that your words, your actions, have, you know, ramifications and you have to really think about what you’re about to say and do because it’s important. It’s important to so many people,” she went on.
In case you missed the whole Donutgate fiasco, Ariana was caught on surveillance cameras in a donut shop on July 4, where she said some questionable things. “I hate Americans, I hate America!” she was caught saying as she looked at the baked goods. Many of her fans were offended by what she was insinuating, but Ariana seems genuinely sorry about her words.
