7 Times Ariana Grande Perfectly Shut Down Disgustingly Sexist Haters
Ariana Grande is someone you seriously can’t help but love. Sure, she had that whole #DoughnutGate scandal back in 2015, but since then she’s totally redeemed herself. Her album, Dangerous Woman, is basically one of the only good things that came out of the entire year of 2016, her relationship with her brother is serious sibling goals, AND she’s a self-proclaimed feminist who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.
As a young woman living in THE WORLD — and especially as a young woman working in the entertainment industry — she comes into contact with misogyny and sexism all. the. time. But Ari isn’t the type of gal who will just laugh it off and let casual sexism go unnoticed. Instead, she isn’t afraid to confront the issues head-on, firing epic disses to haters who say misogynistic B.S. to her face.
When she called out her boyfriend's fan for objectifying her body
An encounter with someone who at first seemed like a harmless Mac Miller fan turned into a spectacle when he made intrusive remarks about the rapper and Ari's sex life.
Ariana is sexy as hell, man. I see you, I see you hitting that," the fan allegedly said.
The "Side to Side" singer commented on the fan's rude words saying, "Hitting that? The f*ck?? This may not seem like a big deal to some of you but I felt sick and objectified. Things like [this] happen all the time and are the kinds of moments that contribute to women's fear and inadequacy. I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilize for his pleasure...We need to talk about these moments openly because they are harmful and live on inside of us as shame."
While most applauded Ariana for speaking out so openly about an event that really hurt her, some people came back telling the pop princess that she was asking for those types of comments because of how sexually she acts in her songs and music videos.
She wrote in response, "Seeing a lot of 'but look how you portray yourself in videos and in your music! you're so sexual!' ... expressing sexuality in art is not an invitation for disrespect !!! just like wearing a short skirt is not asking for assault. ... Women's choice. our bodies, our clothing, our music, our personalities..... sexy, flirty, fun. it is not. an open. invitation." There is nothing more to say: Ari frickin' killed it.
