Atlanta’s Ariana Grande show was the hottest place to be on Saturday evening (June 9) as everyone came together with smiles and happiness to see the “Thank You, Next” singer. However not everyone was as welcoming at the recent show. Ariana took to social to speak about a man was spouted negativity about LGBTQ outside her show.
When Grande found out about the homophobic protest, she was upset to hear that this was happening outside her venue and took to Twitter to address it.
“Man… saddened but not surprised by this one bit. i’m so sorry any of my fans had to encounter this. we will do our best to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” Grande tweeted. “Proud of u all for not fighting / engaging violently. never worth it. wishing him peace & a healed heart cause girl yikes.”
A follower of Grande tweeted the video of the man, see the video here.
The Arianators took control of the situation the best way how and came together in an act of solidarity. They drove the protestors out with a group chant of Steam’s anthem “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.”
