On Tuesday, TMZ published security footage that appeared to show human-kitten hybrid Ariana Grande licking donuts that weren’t hers and saying “I hate America.”
Earlier today, Grande apologized for the wrong part of the video, writing, “I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country.”
And this evening, authorities have finally decided to take Grande’s salivary transgression seriously, reportedly launching “an investigation” into the incident. From The Hollywood Reporter:
Police in Lake Elsinore, California, where the donut shop is located, said they and Riverside County public health officials were investigating the leaked video, which appeared to show the 22-year-old singer and a man with her “maliciously lick” the donuts.
Asked about the police investigation by the Associated Press, a Grande spokesperson said the pop star had no further comment—a degree of lingual restraint she should really start practicing around baked goods.
