Ariana Grande has been busy working on her “thank u, next” music video lately, but it she took a break over the weekend to clap back at some Twitter trolls.
After Ari posted a sweet message about her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller on Thanksgiving, saying “you’re v missed,” some people the opportunity to criticize her. One responded to her tribute to Mac by tweeting, “she milkin this sh*t bruh” and another posted “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.”
Ariana responded with, “i pray you never have to deal with anything like this ever and i’m sending you peace and love.”
Shortly after, the singer sounded about negative comments on her feed. “Some of the sh*t i read on here makes me sick to my stomach,” she ranted. “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 … like f**k.”
Grande, who split from Miller in May after dating for nearly two years, has posted about her ex several times since his death from an accidental drug overdose in September. She defended her mourning process on Twitter on Sunday. “Everything i feel is valid and safe. everything i do is genuine and honest. there is no right or wrong during this period.”
Her fans and friends were quick to defend her. “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 f*ck up,” Halsey tweeted on Sunday.
Ultimately, however, Grande decided to take a break from the social media platform. “Imma go tho for a min,” she wrote to her 59 million followers. “It’s too gnarly on here. i’ll be back tho. love u bye.”
Miller died at the age of 26 on September 7th. His death was caused by an accidental mixed drug toxicity, according to the autopsy. He had fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
