Ariana Grande Reacts to Homophobic Protester Outside Show

Ariana Grande Reacts to Homophobic Protester Outside Show”

A man had stood outside of the venue of Ariana's concert, with a signboard of a rainbow where the word "Pride" was crossed out.

The Thank U, Next singer later shared some loving words for her LGBTI fans at the sold-out performance at State Farm Arena. Ariana will also be seen headlining the Manchester Pride celebration in the month of August, while she returns to the city which was struck by a terrorist attack during her concert in the year 2017 which saw innocent people killed and injured.

A woman confronted the bearded and bald protester, wearing a burgundy polo and khaki shorts. As if that wasn't bad enough, he also set up a speaker system and shouted anti-gay rhetoric into a microphone and argued with passersby that he was doing this because "God wants you to repent".

In a separate video, fans jeered at the man as he was escorted off the premises. There were clips showing the crowd singing, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye".

One fan in the background danced on a podium as this went down.

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

Several fans wound up taking video of incidents surrounding the protestor and uploading them to Twitter.

Grande said a year ago that Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez heard the verses that referenced them before the song came out, but she had wavered between name-checking anybody at all, especially since her breakup with Davidson was still so fresh, and recorded two versions of the tune.

However, she admitted she was 'saddened but not surprised'. "Never worth it", she tweeted on Saturday (June 8).

She added: 'He is highly outnumbered.

Given that Grande has said in the past that her ponytail causes "constant pain," you can imagine she has one less problem without it.
