Ariana Grande RESPONDS To Pete Davidson's "Unfortunate" Manchester Joke

The Saturday Night Live comedian is reported to have commented on Ariana's fame during a standup routine in which he said that his new love must realise how famous she had become because "Britney Spears didn't have a terrorist attack at her concert".

While's there's been a slew of backlash over the past few days, Grande didn't address the joke until a concerned fan tweeted about it yesterday.

Ariana Grande came to the defense of her comedian fiancé, Pete Davidson, after a joke he made referring to the 2017 terror attack at Grande's Manchester concert resurfaced in light of their engagement. "This is my opinion". It was months ago, and his intention was not/ is never malicious, but it was unfortunate'.

Pete was referencing the May 2017 tragedy which killed 22 people and injured more than 800 at the Manchester Arena. He uses comedy to help [people] feel better [about] how f-ed up things in this world are. Some victims were only 8 years old.

Ariana Grande RESPONDS to Pete Davidson's insensitive joke about the Manchester attack.

"For anyone to joke about this situation is disgusting and I think he should publicly apologize for it", Hodgson told the Mirror.

The singer has admitted to suffering from PTSD since the attacks, and keeps those involved close to her heart. "I don't have words", she tweeted after police confirmed the number of deaths and injuries.

Davidson joked about the terror attack five months after the incident, which saw 22 people killed at Ariana's concert in Manchester Arena past year. After all, he would be the last one to make light of a serious situation when he lost his own dad to the September 11 attacks in NY in 2001. "As a way of coping, he turns to humour".
