Ariana Grande Apologises For Homophobic Protest Outside Show
Ariana Grande has apologised to fans for a homophobic protest that took place outside her show in Atlanta on Friday.
Concertgoers attended Ariana’s Sweetener tour on Friday when an anti-gay protest started outside the venue which was hosted by a couple of men holding homophobic banners.
They could be heard shouting abuse at Ariana’s fans, which Ariana has apologised to the concertgoers for. One of the men was hit in the face after a pedestrian walked across and pushed the speaker, hitting him in the face; you can see him checking for a bust lip.

Ariana responded by saying, “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.
Proud of you all for not fighting/engaging violently. Never worth it. Wishing him peace and a healed heart cause girl yikes … he is highly outnumbered. You are all so celebrated and loved and safe.”
She will be headlining the Manchester Pride concert later this summer, and her Sweetener tour continues through November — but additional dates are to be announced soon.
