Is this the end of Doughnutgate?
Ariana Grande issued an official apology on her YouTube channel after she was caught licking doughnuts and then claiming to “hate Americans.”
During the video she posted to Honeymoon Diaries, Grande said,
Not here to make any excuses or justify my behavior because I can’t. I’m just here to apologize.
The 22-year-old singer also wanted to make it very clear she still has a special place in her heart for the US, saying,
I’ve actually never been prouder to be an American to be honest with you. Advances that we've made in the past couple of months and all the wonderful progressive things that have been going on, I've never been prouder of this country actually.
The jury is still out on whether or not America decides to accept the apology or continue to hold a grudge against Grande.
One thing remains very clear though: Apology videos shot with a black and white filter are hella fancy looking.
