Well… This joke went left real quick.
Ariana Grande apologizes after a joke she made about a friend dressing as JonBenét Ramsey.
JonBenét Ramsey was a 6-year-old beauty queen who was killed in 1996.
Over the weekend, Grande’s friend Doug Middlebrook shared a now-deleted Instagram photo of a magazine cover featuring the child pageant queen with the caption: “No one has done more covers.”
In the comments, which were screen-shotted and shared on social media, Grande wrote: “I can’t WAIT for this to be your Halloween look,” to which Middlebrook replied: “working on it already.”
Fans took screenshots of the post, and criticized the singer for her comments on Twitter.
One person said, “Wait WHAT?? an 8-year-old girl who was violently killed, strangled and suffocated cannot be anyone’s costume.”

In conclusion, JonBenet was found dead in her family’s home in Boulder, Colorado.
Her case remains unsolved more than 20 years later.
The Ariana Grande responded, saying, “yeah no i deleted it very quickly and understand that it’s not at all funny. this was out of pocket and i sincerely apologize.”
“Sis..you left the comment for a whole day,” one fan wrote. “You only apologised once you saw that we called you out on it.”
Subsequently, this is not the first time Ariana Grande has been the center of a controversy. Moreover, the pop star issued a video apology for licking doughnuts and saying she hates America.
Another said: “…I love Ariana but I can’t believe she said that. The poor child was brutally murdered in her own home and the fact that she can’t wait for her friend to make a Halloween costume like that is disgusting.”
I can’t lie, this is pretty low Ariana. You’ve done some off things in the past, but this one has to take the cake.
