Fans Are Accusing Ariana Grande Of Using A Blaccent And Blackface
Ariana Grande’s “Thank You, Next” recently blew up the internet — but not without controversy. Folks are taking notice that even though the video is giving us homages of several different hit teen movies, one thing doesn’t change throughout the visual; Ariana’s extremely tan skin.
Ariana has been seemingly tanning for a minute (it was even apparent at Aretha’s homegoing service), but this may be the darkest we’ve seen her.
This image, along with how differently she spoke in a recent Billboard interview is raising brows. While skimming through old photos of herself, Ariana seems to be getting sassy and using AAVE. Did she always speak like this? Hit the 2:25 mark to see what folks are pointing out.
This was just the beginning of the discussion. Ariana was raised in Boca Raton, Florida and her family is Italian according to her bio. Her skin never tanned this dark when she was younger.
