A few hours later when The Shade Room, a celebrity account on Instagram published the same photo saying Ariana actually missed the point of her fans, Grande then appeared on the comment section to apologize.

The singer who recently shared a cryptic message for her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller apologized saying:

"Hi hi. I think her intention was to be like… yay a white person disassociating the negative stariotype that is paired with the word ‘weave'…"

She continued apologizing to her fans:

"however I'm so sorry my response was out of pocket or if it came across the wrong way. Thanks for opening the conversation and like… to everyone for talking to me about it.

She concluded her apology saying:

"It's never my intention to offend anybody."

And obviously, hundreds of comments started to fill up under the same content.
