The 22-year-old singer, born in Florida and best known for her song "Problem", quickly found herself with one after the clip of her went viral but has now apologised. Sort of.
"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," she said in a statement to Buzzfeed.
"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"
Grande went on to brand herself "an advocate for healthy eating" and rant about the US having the highest child obesity rate in the world before finally admitting that her behaviour was wrong.
