Ariana Grande responds after heartfelt tribute to Mac Miller was criticised by troll claiming she's 'milking' his death
It is to her credit that Ariana Grande is able to remain so poised and eloquent in the midst of what must be an extremely trying time in her life.
The past year or so has seen the 25-year-old singer have to deal with a number of incredibly tough situations, not least the horrific terror attack that took place during her concert in Manchester last year.
Since then, Grande has broken up with her former fiancé, Pete Davidson, and been forced to contend with the tragic and untimely death of her ex-partner, the rapper Mac Miller.
Despite all this, Grande is still releasing new music, performing live, and looks to currently be filming what is set to be a truly iconic music video for her latest single, thank u, next.
The One Last Time singer has been teasing fans with shots from the video for the last week or so, and over the weekend she sent fans into something of a meltdown after sharing an image of her dressed up as Regina George of Mean Girls fame.
Sadly, though, despite the number of issues she's had to contend with, Grande is still having to fend off hate from cruel trolls online, and Thanksgiving was no exception.
Grande posted a candid tribute to Mac Miller in the form of a Thanksgiving throwback, but it was one comment that caught the singer's attention. A troll on Twitter wrote, "She milking this sh-- bruh".
Grande swiftly responded with a well-thought out and reasoned reply, taking the moral high ground with this dignified message;
"i pray you never have to deal with anything like this ever and i’m sending you peace and love."
She then added;
"some of the shit i read on here makes me sick to my stomach. 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."
Fellow singer Halsey then waded into the fray to defend Grande, writing;
"Man shut the f*ck up."
In another tweet, she wrote;
"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."
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller were together for two years before splitting up earlier this year in May.
