Ariana Grande Issues Apology After Donut Licking Video Goes Viral

Published: Wednesday 8th Jul 2015 by Sam

For all the adoration, there’s also a hyper-harsh side to stardom.

Just ask Ariana Grande, who has been receiving a lashing of late thanks to leaked store footage showing her licking a donut (without buying it) and declaring that she “hates” America.

Here at That Grape Juice we don’t like to wallow in such trivialness, however the heat being beamed the 22-year-old’s way has been scorching.

So much so that she’s just issued an apology statement. Check it out below where footage of the incident that sparked the drama also awaits.

Ariana Via US Weekly:

“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 one of 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 that we put into 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 recovery 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.”

Well spun. The whole episode feels a bit…elementary though. Both her actions and the furore surrounding. But that’s our two cents. What are…

Your thoughts?

    I don’t see the big deal, licking a donut really?

    • Rosie July 8, 2015

      Because it’s disgusting and unsanitary…? She didn’t even throw the donut away, she put it right back KNOWING someone else could’ve bought that.
      Not to mention she was a total c*** to that employee. Nasty ass.

      • OMG Logic!!! July 8, 2015

        Queen Mariah would never.

      • Bravo!! July 8, 2015

        It just shows what people was saying about her attitude as a person on the video as well..

    • Bravo!! July 8, 2015

      It’s already bugs flying around the donuts! Then some ingorant rich girl licks a donut; as consumers we don’t see how and what people do behind close door when preparing food.

      Why do these divas date Gay Backup dancers, do they get lonely on the road. All these gay boys are doing is trying to be famous so they mess with these girls heads. I agree Jorge Santos is all on instagram hugged up with a guy knowing he USED Christina Aguilera to be famous until she realized you cant turn a gay boy straight, sad but true.

      Ladies stop dating Gay Back-up dancers

  2. Ozzy July 8, 2015

    Elementary? She is so disrespectful for that. Like, what kind of person goes into an establishment, DAMAGES the goods, INSULTS the employees and then says “I Hate America’. She is a straight up B-I-T-C-H and her diva antics aren’t warranted given the fact that she’s still so young. Humble yourself, you skin and bones ass flop.

    • Arc July 8, 2015

      Rihanna does…

      • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB July 8, 2015

        In other news her boyfriend is fooiiiiinnneee! Where can i get me one? Maybe we can have a 3 way Ari. Dang i didn’t know the rumors was true about her being a total witch tho

      • Faf July 8, 2015

        U might have a chance he look gay

      • Ozzy July 8, 2015

        When? She only comes for people that try her first. Most people that have met her say she is sweet.

    • Iconic Cici July 8, 2015

      Rihanna is no better she goes around punching fans at her concerts.

  3. Mark111 July 8, 2015

    Whatever Mini MooMoo. You’re in a doughnut shop! That’s like me going into a burger joint and complaining because they’re displaying meat (I’m a vegetarian btw). She’s done, she could barely sell as it is, now parents won’t be buying for their 5 year olds.

  4. Rosie July 8, 2015

    LMAO at her being exposed like this. Even her own stans were dragging her on Twitter (although they were blaming it on her boyfriend and saying she should get back with Big Sean).
    She should definitely get it together, acting like a b**** won’t get you that far in the long run unless you can prove it.

  5. Red July 8, 2015

    Ariana is a bïtch and a low-key industry THOT. Fučk her.

  6. Quinton251 aka Lil Wayne Stan July 8, 2015

    Disgusting dirty b****, now what if this b**** had swine flu and just passed it to an unsuspected customer. I’m starting to believe those diva rumors to, get I together or else your career will be shorters then Christina’s.

  7. ENOUGH ONIKA July 8, 2015


  8. lol July 8, 2015

    She’s only sorry because she got caught

  9. Molly July 8, 2015

    She’s disgusting. Like seriously humble yourself bitcchx.

  10. Rihanna Lately July 8, 2015

    I’m all about positive vibes but I won’t let this go. I hope white America ends this girls career!! already black america isn’t here for her. She hasn’t even scanned platinum or #1 song or a grammy & already she thinks she’s a big diva. She’s RUDE, NASTY & PETTY… Her attitude stinks. Horrible girl

    • Rey July 8, 2015

      Yes Yes Yes! I couldn’t have said better myself!

  11. LB July 8, 2015

    I don’t care about all of that but her new boy toy is kind of cute. Not Ariana being a sugar mama at such a young age, she really does want to be Mariah Carey.

  12. Rihanna Lately July 8, 2015

    She’s not sorry.

  13. LB July 8, 2015

    Frankly it is appalling that people aren’t mad at the Donut shop for not offering healthier options.

    Donuts are processed disgusting crap that people shouldn’t be eating anyway.

    • OMG Logic!!! July 8, 2015

      Why would a DONUT SHOP offer healthier options? It’s a f*cking donut shop smh! If you’re on a fancy diet then you don’t go there. SMH vegan logic.

  14. Stephy July 8, 2015

    American media is DRAGGGGGGING Ari. Her next album better slay or her career is over.

  15. Karen July 8, 2015

    If this video wouldn’t have came out she wouldn’t be apologizing. She’s way to entitled.

  16. Rihanna Lately July 8, 2015

    Her voice is beautiful & it can turn trashy songs to Hits ala Break Free BUT her attitude no madam!

  17. Rima July 8, 2015

    Why is she even at a donut shop if she’s worried about healthy eating? You still acted like a rotten brat with no class.

  18. StrawberryMuffin24 July 8, 2015

    Don’t even dare put my girl Christina in this she’s already an icon and legend bish her career has lasted almost 20 years can’t wait for her next album! Christina Aguilera is THE VOICE Always will be!

    Now back to this bish Ariana who sings like peanut butter stuck in her throat, she was rude and nasty she let a lil bit of fame get to her!

    • no stan zone July 8, 2015

      Christina’s a LEGEND? Aguilera? Stop it please.

  19. Rima July 8, 2015

    Ariana aka Christina 2.0 can exit the door along with the original trash.

  20. StrawberryMuffin24 July 8, 2015

    Christina Aguilera is enjoying her life with her kids and fiance and she still stays on the haters bitter and jealous ass minds with no new music out yet she’s a LEGEND INDEED!

  21. Sherry July 8, 2015

    She has always been a little b****! I will never forget her nasty disposition when was was performing and interacting with the fans on GMA! She has this stank attitude with no real receipts to back it up.

  22. Gee July 8, 2015

    This young lady is the true definition of spoiled entitled brat. Her apology is a PR move because she got caught and guess what I am not buying it.

  23. lolhart July 8, 2015

    Of course TGJ doesn’t think it’s a big deal cos it’s Ariana. But if it was Mariah or Rihanna it would be a different story.

  24. StrawberryMuffin24 July 8, 2015

    Yea Ariana has a very stuck up attitude i remember her acting like a bish at this radio show i went too last year she needs to bring it down a notch!

  25. JOHNVIDAL July 8, 2015

    People should be more worried about her terrible diction and generic music though 🙂

    • Grande The Way July 8, 2015

      You mean enunciation? And I figured a Gaga fan would enjoy generic music.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 9, 2015

        The good thing about Gaga is her real talent for music. Generic material aside. She can sang, she songwrites, she can perform any type of music, she has made outsatnding videos and more things. And she has a nice enunciation yes 🙂
        Ariana can only sing. And her singing style is a copy (bad copy) of Mariah Carey´s. In that comparison she loses it all, because she is weaker, has no soul, her voice sounds annoying when she goes high, she doesn´t really have a proper whistle register and on and on. And I repeat, Ariana only sings, nothing else. So either she tries harder to improve or demands her producers to ccok decent music. That or die like a generic artist everybody will forget.

  26. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! July 8, 2015

    This is gross, though if she had rubbed it on her p****,,, sure I’d have ate that! Yum!

  27. OMG Logic!!! July 8, 2015

    Of course TGJ doesn’t “get it.” Americans unlike Brits are very patriotic for better or worse. If you can’t be proud of your country, what can you be proud of? As for this little th0t, I knew she was never more than a little wannabe diva b1tch. She lacks Mariah’s talent, humility, and class class class.

  28. Get Some Class Ariana July 8, 2015

    The crazy thing is she looks so innocent. Wolf in sheeps clothing.

  29. What now July 8, 2015


  30. Trina July 8, 2015

    baby xtina sit down your career is hanging on a thread.

  31. gurlbye July 8, 2015

    She is so ridiculous and I hope the nasty wannabe diva attitude behind her cutesy image gets exposed for all to see.

  32. Grande The Way July 8, 2015

    I really hope this is a wake up call for her. I’ve always ignored the b*tch rumors because there was no proof of it but her attitude towards the employees was just nasty. This will no doubt be gone and forgotten by next month but I hope she learns from the backlash and fixes her attitude before it does real damage.

  33. tyo July 8, 2015

    This is just deeply immature, disrespectful and disgusting. You can be one of the biggest star on the planet, it shouldn’t stop you from staying class.

  34. Regina George July 8, 2015

    I am SOOOOO glad the truth is coming out about this little toothpick with a ponytail. I haven’t been here for her since that father wrote that looooong letter about how she was such an azzzz to his daughter when she won that MTV prize and met her. She has an awesome team behind her making her look like a golden child when she is an awful person that looks down on others. She sings like she is under water and she is acting as if she has accolades that would warrant anything this extra from her. She should’ve eaten that doughnut so she wouldn’t slip down the shower drain when she gets in. Rude azzzz

  35. coolness July 8, 2015

    What kind of deflective wack a** apology?! First of all, what does healthy eating and obesity rates have to do with the fact that you, Ariana Grande, walked into a DOUGHNUT shop (did she think she’d find top-end vegan cuisine there???), damaged the goods (by placing her gross tongue on them) and did NOT pay for it?!?! Bish, ain’t nobody need to hear about stats of how fat the American population is. All one has to do is walk down the street of any city and the proof is in the pudding (no pun intended). What makes it worse is that she included the phrase, “if I offended anybody..” Girl, I dunno whether that tight a** ponytail is constricting blood flow to your brain but I think yelling “What the f**k is this?!” to innocent hard-working employees is pretty damn offensive. So sad because her music is sorta like a guilty pleasure of mine and she’s talented but I always knew at the back of mind that those diva rumors were true. And her dumb Arianators can fall back with their wack excuses. Talking about maybe she knew the owner of the shop. DEATH!

  36. StrawberryMuffin24 July 8, 2015

    Christina didn’t diss anyone all those artists you just named bish have dissed someone before so cry me a river ho!

    Christina Aguilera got you haters pressed and dumb ass brains this thread is not about her but of course you broke haters bring THE LEGEND up. QUEENTINA IS AN ICON she’s already proved herself cant wait for her new masterpiece stay mad bish!

    People are dying and the American GP fumes over something like this. It’s disgusting, but move on. You guys make like she pulled a brandy

  39. Musika July 8, 2015

    Donut employees must’ve been pissed as hell for her comments that’s why they leaked their security s*** xD

  40. african music lover July 8, 2015


  41. Rihboy July 9, 2015

    Arianna go to bed. Such a terrible publicity stunt. Licking a donut? Is news that slow? Poor girl fell off so bad. Came and went like Kat deluna.

  42. mike July 9, 2015


    Thats disgusting! If Rihanna did it, Sam and his hata squad would have been all over it.

  43. vinny July 9, 2015

    She reminds me of that demonic b**** from csse39. F*** her

  44. cocobutta July 9, 2015

    That is not diva antics, it trailer park behaviors.
    Nasty, trashy, sleazy & classless.

    That voice needs to redeem her childish ways.
    It’s bad enough her voice slays but diction and attitude needs a big improvement.

    A TRUE diva would NEVER!

  45. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money July 9, 2015

    Some people ain’t gonna like her music no more bet you she don’t give a damn about that and her boyfriend shouldn’t tell her to lick that doughnut that’s gross plus she isn’t sorry for real

  46. Lisa July 9, 2015

    That apology was so fake. At first I was going to give her a pass because I thought this was an old video of her at like 15-16 years old being a brat. But, based on the comments, this sh*t is recent!!???? She should be ashamed of herself. She would have been better off with this apology: “I was being the spoiled, rude b**** that I really am and I’m sorry my fans had to see me this way. I really need help and counseling to figure out why I’m so nasty. I will immediately seek help and hopefully you all can forgive me some day. Thank you.” Smh…

  47. Javier July 10, 2015

    I can’t believe she used the excuse “I’m only human”. First of all, real humans don’t do that. Second, you inspire so many people. What made you think that was ok? Your fans are gonna watch this and think that they have been supporting and evil witch. Come dude, I’m pretty sure stupid teens wouldn’t even do this. And why would the owner of the store invite her back in. Wtf sorry ariana but an apology is not going to make up for your disrespect to America.
