Following the racially charged backlash over her latest song, 7 Rings, Ariana Grande has apologized to everyone who have been offended by her comments.
It all started when Ariana Grande shared, and then swiftly deleted, a fan’s post to her Instagram Stories, which quoted a line from 7 Rings.
“You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it.” the post read, with the user adding sarcastically, “White women talking about their weaves is how we’re gonna solve racism.”
Now, Ariana wrote alongside the post that she had “so much love” for the user, but took it down entirely when some believed her response to the racially-charged critique was a bit more insensitive than she might have originally attended.
As soon as this story was up, The Shade Room posted a screenshot of Ariana’s social media snafu, the 25-year-old slid into the comments section with a heartfelt apology.
“Hi hi, I think her intention was to be like. Yaa white person disassociating the negative stereotype that is paired with the word weave. However, I’m so sorry my response was out of pocket or if it came across the wrong way. Thanks for opening the conversation and like to everyone for talking to me about it. It’s never my intention to offend anybody.” wrote the pop star.
If all this was not enough, rappers Soulja Boy and 2 Chainz have called out singer Ariana Grande for allegedly copying their work for her latest track 7 Rings.
The latest single, which is a part of her popular album, Thank U, Next, was an instant rage all thanks to Ariana’s rap about her money, Tiffany rings and so on. Earlier this month, Ariana was also accused of stealing lyrics by rapper Princess Nokia for the same song.
Despite the apparent scandal, Ariana’s 7 Rings broke Spotify’s record for most streams within the first 24 hours with nearly 15 million streams.
