Ariana Grande wants the world to know that she's sorry for her questionable antics inside a California doughnut shop last weekend. Ariana, who visited Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, CA, last Saturday, was caught on the store's security camera licking display doughnuts that were later purchased by unsuspecting customers and proclaiming, "I hate America." After the footage was released, Ariana released a lengthy apology for the video, but she decided on Thursday that she had a lot more to say.
In the video titled "sorry babes," which was posted to the singer's YouTube page, Ariana explains, "I feel like the apology that I posted, I kind of missed my opportunity to actually sincerely apologise and express how I was feeling because I was too busy preaching about my issues with the food industry. So here I am, apologising again. I was trying to get you to understand where I was coming from when I said what I said. But that's not important, and I'd rather just apologise." Watch the full video above, then read her previous statement below. What do you think of Ariana's latest apology?
"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 apologise if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words."
