Besides the news that Ariana Grande split with Ricky Alvarez, being famous doesn’t mean that it’s a free pass to perform at the White House.
As you may recall, Ariana Grande was caught on camera back in July of 2015 in a donut store being completely disrespectful. The 23-year-old Ariana Grande put her tongue on many bakery items and put them back in the case. On top of this horrible behavior, Ariana Grande said she hated America. There is no excuse for something like that and it is great to hear that Ariana was flagged by a vetting process that did not clear her to perform at the White House. How could she even be considered after saying she hated America. There is absolutely nothing funny about what she said and did.
An email that was published on Wikileaks was leaked that showed a request was made for her suitability to be vetted. Despite her clean criminal record, her unusual behavior with Ricky Alvarez flagged her to senior staff personnel. The email that was sent to many staff members on September 10, 2015 read: ‘‘Ariana Butera – video caught her licking other peoples’ donuts while saying she hates America. Republican Congressman used this video and said it was a double standard and that liberals are not upset with her like they are with Trump who criticized Mexicans and cursed out a person on Twitter after that person used an offensive word towards her brother. (sic)”
It is sad how some performers assume they can do whatever they want and get away with it. Hopefully the Scream Queens young actress has learned a lesson. Ariana Grande is fortunate that she did not have more repercussions from the incident. The email had also mentioned the fact that she avoided criminal charges. It did say that Grande made ”two long YouTube apologies.” The second of Ariana’s YouTube apologies had the star of Victorious stating that she was disgusted with herself and wanted to disappear after TMZ posted the video. “White house employee Bobby Schmuck reviewed the report and proposal and simply replied: Nope, sorry.”
Ariana Grande had previously apologized for her conduct. The Sam and Cat actress said, ‘‘First of all, my behavior was very offensive and I apologized. There’s no excuse or there’s nothing to justify it. I think as human beings we all say and do things that we don’t mean at all sometimes.” Ariana added, ”That’s how we grow and I’ve learned what it feels like to disappoint so many people who love and believe in you and that’s an excruciating feeling.” Let’s hope Ariana Grande has truly learned her lesson. What do you think of Ariana Grande’s behavior and being passed by the White House to perform? Do you think, now that she dumped Ricky she will spin a story and point the finger at Alvarez?
