Just over two weeks ago, Ariana Grande split with her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. Not long after the breakup, Miller was arrested for a DUI. In response to the incident, one of their fans took to Twitter, blaming Grande for Miller’s mishap. However, Grande would have none of it, and called out the inherent sexism in his criticism.
26 year-old rapper, Mac Miller, has long struggled with sobriety, and following the breakup, he was arrested for a DUI after hitting a utility pole and fleeing the scene. Here’s what one fan, @FlintElijah, had to say about it:
“Mac Miller totalling [sic] his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood.”
On Wednesday, Grande (@ArianaGrande) personally responded to his tweet with a bold statement sharing her side of the story:
“how absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn’t the case…I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.”
Grande continued saying she had tried to “support his sobriety” but that “shaming/blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem.”
Following their exchange, the Twitter user offered his sincere apologies, which the pop singer accepted.
