Ariana Grande is saying sorry after she joked that her friend should go as JonBenét  Ramsey, the murdered child beauty queen, for Halloween. 

The 'No Tears Left to Cry' singer started to receive major backlash from fans after they noticed a joke she made that involved Ramsey whose murder is still infamous. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Grande's friend uploaded a picture of Ramsey on the cover of a newspaper. The photo was captioned, "No one has done more covers." 

After Doug Middlebrook shared the picture on Instagram, Grande commented, "I cant WAIT for this to be your halloween look." To which Middlebrook replied saying, "working on it already." 



 

 

After noticing Grande's comment, a fan took to Twitter and shared screenshots of the Instagram exchange saying, "Wait WHAT?? an 8-year-old girl who was violently killed, strangled and suffocated cannot be anyone's costume." 

Once she started to receive flak from fans, with many calling her out for the insensitive joke, Grande took to Twitter and tweeted saying, "Yeah no i deleted it very quickly and understand that it's not at all funny," she responded in a tweet. "This was out of pocket and i sincerely apologize."

Replying to her apology a fan tweeted saying, "no baby that comment was up for a day and you’re just now apologizing because you got called out. this ain’t it sis. r u good?” While another added, “hey girl it wasn’t deleted ‘quickly’ it was left up for like a day."

 



 

 

Post Grande's apology, a fan said, "I truly love ariana w all of my heart and i continue to support her, but she is 26. she shouldn't need her fans to call her out so she can realize that what she did was wrong. She apologized and its enough for me.i hope she felt bad and she will be more sensitive from now on." 

Following the criticism that Grande received from her fans, they patched up after a fan tweeted saying, "We love you more always." To which Grande replied saying, "nah." 

"Shut up we do," tweeted another fan, and Grande retorted saying, "No."
