The post featured a screenshot of an Instagram Story originally reposted, and then deleted, by Ariana: “‘You like my hair? Gee thanks, just bought it!’ White women talking about their weaves is how we’re gonna solve racism,” the post read.

“This #PostAndDelete by #ArianaGrande has fans upset because they feel she’s missing the point of the backlash. Meanwhile, #ScooterBraun says #7Rings has hit a record on #Spotify,” wrote The Shade Room.

“Hi hi, I think her intention was to be like…yay a white person disassociating the negative stariotype [sic] that is paired with the word ‘weave’…however I’m so sorry if my response was out of pocket or if it came across the wrong way. Thanks for opening the conversation and like…to everyone for talking to me about it. It’s never my intention to offend anybody,” Ariana commented in response.

    This non-sense criticism proves that people on the internet are a bunch of IMBECILES.
    the one that tweeted “wHitE wOmEn tAlKin ‘boUt thEiR WeAveS blah blah” is a F UCKlNG DUMBASS. I really doubt solving racism was in Grande’s mind when she wrote the song lol
    It’s just a pop song, no need to politicize a dumb POP SONG.
