Ariana Grande is sorry for the offensive thing she said about Americans and their eating habits. The pint-size diva issued a Twitter statement in which she apologized and explained as a healthy eater herself, childhood obesity makes her really upset. Still, she knew that her behavior was uncalled for. 

“Need to clean up this mouth of mine and set a better example for my babes. I apologize and I love you,” she captioned a picture of her written statement. “Always learning.”

The text of her apology is below:

"I am extremely proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words. As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry. However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better. As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show. I hope to make it up to all those fans soon. That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words."

The drama unfolded after a surveillance camera caught Grande and her new boyfriend and backup dancer, Ricky Alvarez, apparently licking pastries at a doughnut shop in California on the Fourth of July. When workers brought out a new tray of freshly glazed doughnuts the “Love Me Harder” singer shouted, “What the f--- is that? I hate Americans. I hate America! That’s disgusting.”
