Why you hatin’ on America and its many doughnut lovers, Ariana Grande?
Police are investigating a video that appears to show the singer- whom I’ve always thought seemed pretty rude and entitled- licking donuts on display at a shop in Lake Elsinore, California. So, next time you have a hankering for carbs in SoCal, you may wanna think twice. Some inebriated celebudiva may have spread her saliva all over your chocolate sprinkles, just SAYIN.’ People reports:
Cops have teamed up with public health officials to investigate the incident, the Associated Press reports. Grande herself is not being investigated, but rather Wolfee Donuts, the donut shop where the incident occurred.
Health officials are looking into why the donuts were left exposed and whether the shop has a history of leaving food out. California health laws require restaurants to keep food protected from the public. Luckily for the shop, authorities found no further issues with the shop when they visited Wednesday.
“During the investigation, the manager did state they normally don’t leave donuts out like was shown in the video,” Dottie Ellis-Merki, a spokeswoman for the Riverside County Department of Environment, told the AP. “The employee went to the back to retrieve freshly made donuts by request of the customer and left the trays out while getting other trays.”
The video, first posted Tuesday, made waves because Grande also shouts, “I hate Americans. I hate America.”
She has since issued an apology for the harsh words. “I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country,” she said in a statement Wednesday. “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.”
Mayra Solis, 22, a cashier at Wolfee, told the AP that Grande didn’t buy any of the donuts she appeared to lick, adding that the singer was “really rude.”
Of COURSE Ari was rude and doing weird crap to inconvenience the good people of Lake Elsinore. Remember that rumor that she had to be carried around like a baby? This seems like an extension of that.
Also, what kind of MONSTER only licks a doughnut, but does not buy or eat? That’s anti-American.
