Ariana Grande Speaks Out About Pete Davidson’s Manchester Bombing Joke: It Wasn’t Funny …

Recently, the world was reminded that, many months before dating Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson made an unfortunate joke about the Manchester Bombing.

Ariana’s fans, understandably sensitive to the issue, reacted with shock.

Now, after giving it some thought, Ariana is speaking out.

In the autumn of 2017, Pete Davidson put his gallows humor on full display when speaking about Ariana Grande in stand-up.

At the time, he and Ariana were not even dating, let alone engaged.

He joked that the horrible Manchester bombing of Ariana’s concert in 2017 had been a measure of the level of Ariana’s fame.

“Britney Spears,” Pete noted for contrast. “Didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.”

It wasn’t terribly funny as a joke and, since Britney was doing her Vegas residency at the time, the comparison doesn’t really work, either.

But more or less everyone forgot about it … until a few days ago, when people dredged it up again now that Pete and Ariana are engaged.

A number of fans, who took the Manchester bombing very personally, were shocked.

(Keep in mind that, not only is a terrorist attack that kills multiple children serious, but a number of Ariana’s fans are too young to remember 9/11 and this may have been their first brush with non-shooting terrorism that touched them, personally)

It was one tweet by an Arianator that prompted Ariana to speak her mind on Pete’s joke.

The fan wrote: “I respect Ariana and I want her to be happy and everything, but she was just broken after the Manchester bombing.”

The fan’s tweet continues: “so I don’t know why she is still with Pete, like yeah he made that joke a while ago, but like it’s not funny, it’s just rude. This is my opinion.”

Ariana clearly gave this some thought before replying.

Ariana Grande Speaks Out on Pete Davidson Joke

Ariana replied with a tweet of her own.

“This has been very tough & conflicting on my heart,” Ariana admits.

Referring to Pete, she writes that “he uses comedy to help people feel better about how f-ed up things in this world are.”

He sure does.

“We all deal w trauma differently,” Ariana admits.

She’s right. Different coping mechanisms for different folks.

“I of course didn’t find it funny,” she admits.

“it was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious,” Ariana says. “But it was unfortunate.”

There are a few things that we should all remember.

One, Pete Davidson’s father died on 9/11. He absolutely does not think that terrorism is funny, but he uses dark humor to cope.

Two, though this was a bad joke (honestly, barely a joke), there are lines that Pete is not crossing. He’s not wishing a terrorist attack on someone else, for example. He’s not hurling slurs.

Three, somebody making a crappy joke before you ever dated is really not breakup material. Sure, you can break up for any reason, but that would be … odd.

Four, and this can be the hardest to grasp, but the way that Pete spoke before dating Ariana was directed at a more adult audience. 

Now that he and Ariana are engaged, he will probably be more conscious that there are impressionable and emotional teens hanging onto his every word.

Ariana and Pete’s whirlwind romance has still caught a number of fans by surprise.

In fact, it was at Ariana’s tribute to the Manchester bombing victims that she and Pete were first spotted cozying up to each other.

Now the two are engaged, and it is understandable that some fans are still scratching their heads and trying to figure out what’s going on.

Some may even have misgivings about Ariana accepting the proposal of this man whom they barely know.

But they should remember that, though Ariana loves her Arianators, they are not literally her family. She does not actually need their permission to date or marry.

Fans should be happy to Ariana is happy.

Drake’s new music video for “I’m Upset” — with his ‘Degrassi’ castmates — wasn’t a clever distraction from his beef with Pusha T … but it was a bad, and unavoidable, coincidence. Drizzy took a ton of heat for releasing the video while fans were…

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 21 Recap: Kim Zolciak Claims Racism ‘Wasn’t Real’ and Is Magnified by Social Media

Kim Zolciak took her final stand against her enemies on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 21, and we think it’s fair to say she won’t be missed. 

From deplorable comments to even more deplorable comments, Kim went out by pretty much incinerating what little credibility she had left. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will already know that Kim has been going at it with most of the other housewives all season long. 

However, most of the housewives took offense to Kim branding Leakes as “sick and disgusting” for living in a roach nest. 

The housewives felt like this lapse in judgment was racist, and that Kim should own up to what she did wrong. 

“You’re reaching. Reaching,” Zolciak-Biermann fired back when she realized her words did not land with the ladies. “Don’t try it. It has nothing to do with the projects or none of that s—. A roach is a roach.”

But the real drama was saved for when Kim when Kim held a private meeting after the show was over. 

However, Andy was not ready to admit defeat and urged Kim to make her comments heard. 

“That bitch knows I’m not racist. NeNe knows I’m not racist,” Zolciak-Biermann said to Cohen.

“You know why you have not found another white woman to [join the cast]? Because nobody is dumb enough to do that!”

“Put yourself in my shoes — five African-American women — just hammered! I couldn’t even speak, my mind’s a f—— whirlwind!”

Kim then went a step too far by complaining that racism was only something being made bigger by social media. 

“This whole racism thing in this day in age is b——. Everyone of those m———— on that couch owe this world a f—— apology for this racism s—,” she said.

“They already tried to claim that s— long ago. Nobody bought into it then because the social media wasn’t there and racism wasn’t f—— all that real. You know it.”

We wish we were kidding about what she said, but she drew a line and took a high jump over it. 

It makes sense now that Kim is off the show because she never wanted to admit she was wrong, and the other housewives all seemed to echo Leakes’ sentiments about her. 

“How much can a person take?” Kim asked Cohen in the show’s final moments.

“There wasn’t even one positive question for me. I was hammered! … There wasn’t a positive question. I have a very success marriage, I have beautiful children, there was nothing positive.”

But Andy knew Kim had made her bed, and he or the producers were not to blame for the way she acted. 

“There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season,” he told her. “It was all combative, it was. Because your whole time on the show as combative, it was.”

Yeah, we think it’s doubtful that Kim will ever appear on the series again, but she still has Don’t Be Tardy, and we’re not sure how that’s going to pan out. 

Okay, what did you think of the final episode of the season? Did Kim go too far? Should she return to reality TV?
