Ariana Grande was performing in Atlanta for her Sweetener World Tour when a man had the audacity to stand outside the venue with a microphone in hand, belting homophobic comments.

ET Canada has reached out to Grande's rep to see how this could change her concerts going forward.

A woman confronted the bearded and bald protester, wearing a burgundy polo and khaki shorts.

The protester was eventually forced to leave by fans, with a separate video showing crowds jeering him with chants of "goodbye".

She directed her fans to go check out an episode of "Black Mirror" starring Miley Cyrus - and ended her caption saying, "Also my hair is down again".

The censor did concede to the newspaper that "It's a good story, in that it's about an individual trying to move on in life". Surprisingly, Samoa did not ban 2018's " Bohemian Rhapsody " from theaters, which most likely stemmed from its PG-13 rating.

"By the end of it someone had through his banner over the bridge, the speaker had been tipped over multiple times", one witness wrote on Twitter.

'One of their headsets was taken out and tossed'.

Social media had a field day with Grande's post, and it's gained more than four million likes with so many people saying how much they love her look.

Several fans wound up taking video of incidents surrounding the protestor and uploading them to Twitter. While she described herself as "saddened" by the display, she admitted she was "not surprised". She thanked them for not "engaging violently" - they didn't in that clip - because it's "never worth it". A year ago also, she wrote a love-filled letter to her LGBTQ fans in order to celebrate the Pride month. You are all so celebrated and loved and safe'. Can we just say that we totally are in the awe of this girl for standing up for what she believes is the right thing to do without being affected by the haters?
