Ariana Grande has had a pretty rough run of things lately. Despite releasing the hit song “Thank u, next”, behind closed doors Ariana’s been going through a whole heap of stuff. Aside from calling off her engagement to Pete Davidson, she’s also experienced the tragic death of her long-term ex, Mac Miller.
But rather than letting her grieve in peace, trolls started blaming Ari for Mac’s death – because the internet is a truly fucked up place.
At the time, Ari called out haters, saying her decision to leave a toxic relationship does not make her responsible for Mac’s fate:
“How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn’t the case (just Cinderella is ab me),” Grande Tweeted.
“I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.”
Two months on and we thought the troll BS had subsided, but alas.
To commemorate Thanksgiving, Ariana shared a throwback picture with Mac saying “you’re v missed.”
It was then that some asshole Internet haters started having a go at Ari again, accusing her of exploiting Mac Miller’s death for her own personal gain…
One wrote on Twitter “She milkin this shit bruh”:
“Ariana let it go… Mourn it behind closed doors. Stop milkin’ it when you wasn’t even there when he was at his lowest right before it happened.”
Never one to tolerate crap, Ariana called out the trolls, but did it in the most graceful way possible, writing:
“i pray you never have to deal with anything like this ever and i’m sending you peace and love.”
Aria went on to comment about how Twitter can be so damn toxic:
“some of the shit i read on here makes me sick to my stomach. it scares me the way some people think and i don’t like this world a lot of the time. if only we could be more compassionate and gentle with one another. that’d be sick.”
Halsey also chimed in to defend Ari against the trolls, saying:
“ari the world could only dream of being as compassionate and gentle as you. and since ur being, as always, so classy and nice, allow me the honor of telling them to shut the fuck up.”
