Ariana Grande Apologizes for Her Disgusting Donut-Licking Stunt -- But No One's Buying It (VIDEO)

Ariana Grande flipping her hair

The "Problem" singer may be famous for her diva-like ways, but this time her behavior in a California donut shop went way too far -- and she sort of knows it. Earlier today, Ariana Grande tried to make amends after she was caught licking donuts on a tray while employees were looking the other way.

Of course, the potential licking (we wish we were at Lake Elsinore's Wolfee Donuts to see if there was actual tongue-on-donut action!) wasn't her only offense. The 22-year-old was also caught on camera with her backup dancer and rumored new beau Ricky Alvarez giving quite a July 4 tongue-lashing to a fresh tray of the confections. "What the f--k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America," she says.

Yeah, even Grande knows those donuts didn't deserve to be scolded -- and she released a statement apologizing for her "choice of words":

I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my county. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words. As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. The fact that the United States has the highest child obesity rate 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. We need to demand more from our food industry. 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.

So was her donut destruction just a war on pastries? Was it a statement on childhood obesity? A fat-shaming moment? Or just pure and utter rudeness? We have so many questions for the diva -- and so does the Twitterverse.

What do you think Grande was trying to say in her apology?
