Caught on CCTV: Pop Singer Ariana Grande Blasts America

A security camera at a California doughnut shop captured pop singer Ariana Grande bashing Americans.

Be careful what you say. You never know if video surveillance is recording you.

Unfortunately, pop singer Ariana Grande is learning that the hard way, and is now in hot water after video surveillance footage emerged of the Grammy-nominated artist blasting America.

In the video obtained by gossip site TMZ, Grande is in a California doughnut shop. She is seen licking the dessert food along with her backup dancer.

Things get interesting when a donut shop worker brings out a fresh batch of doughnuts. You can hear Grande using an expletive before stating, “I hate Americans. I hate America.”

The singer, who just pulled out of MLB All-Star Game concert, is now doing damage control. In a statement she says:

“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 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.

– Ariana Grande”
