Ariana Grande Got Confused For a Taco Bell Item at Aretha Frankin's Funeral!

Ariana Grande Got Confused For a Taco Bell Item at Aretha Frankin's Funeral!

Ariana Grande gave a incredible performance at Aretha Franklin‘s funeral, but not everyone knew who she was!

After an impressive cover of “Natural Woman,” Bishop Charles H. Ellis III joined Ariana on stage to make a lighthearted joke.

“I’ve got to apologize because I have to brush up. My 28-year-old daughter tells me, ‘Dad! You are old at 60.’ When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell,” the Bishop Charles joked.

Ariana took the joke well and laughed along with the crowd.

Charles continued, “Girl let me give you all of the respect! Did you enjoy this icon? She is an icon herself. Come on, make her feel loved!”

    “Your Latina name made me think of something from Taco Bell”, oh no, that wasn’t racist AT ALL.

    *rolls eyes*

    Disgusting, right? Even more disgusting that referring to her Latina/Hispanic name as making him think of something from Taco Bell. I can’t even wrap my head around how people can say shit like this — where is this man’s filter?? Imagine if someone saw a name like “Laquanda Jackson” and said it reminded them of something from a Popeye’s Fried Chicken menu. Pure, seething arrogance.

    He’s a black man at a star-studded event, so he’ll get a pass for this outrageous display of no-boundaries.

    Can his 15 mins of fame be over already? He’s a creep and this was very inappropriate for a funeral.

    USA Today calls it a “Dad joke”. No USA Today, if was a BAD joke, and a racist one at that! He is one creepy Bishop.

    Which race? Mexican is a nationality of many races, Hispanic is an ethnicity of many races. Ariana is a White girl of Italian descent. All of you sound as ignorant as the preacher.

  • Manuel Varela

    You know she isn’t Hispanic right? Grande is also “large” in Italian. Both are European languages originating from Latin.
