This country would have one less problem without her.
Gossip website TMZ obtained video of singer Ariana Grande, accompanied by one of her backup dancers, rudely licking donuts on a display while the worker is in the back preparing a fresh batch.
After being caught when the worker brings out more donuts, Grande launches into a very unpatriotic tirade.
“What the f--k is that?” she said. “I hate Americans. I hate America.”
Grande, a noted liberal, has come out in support of Hillary Clinton ahead of the 2016 election.

Grande apologized for her comments about the country in a statement to the Associated Press Wednesday.
"I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I've always made it clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the doughnuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words," the statement read.
She said her words were about "how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences."
"The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rates in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies," she said. "However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better."
