Back in 2018, James explained that Ariana followed him on Instagram but then quickly unfollowed him after some of his past tweets upset her fans.

In 2018, James explained in a YouTube video, “I was like, ‘Hey, did I do something wrong?’ And she literally was like, ‘Hey babe, I saw a lot of angry tweets from my fans and I would never want to disappoint them, so I unfollowed.’

James added at the time, “You have a hundred million fans, it’s really disappointing that you would, like, stoop to the level of listening to people bullying me, just to, like, appease them, but okay.’ I’ve always looked up to Ariana and I think she’s one of the most talented vocalists of our generation, but it just really sucked that I was literally getting bullied by her fans and instead of just ignoring it and building a friendship she literally just listened to them and unfollowed, which is just saying that’s okay to do. That was a disappointing interaction.”

Now, on Wednesday (September 15), James was asked “What did Ariana Grande do for you to say she’s the rudest celebrity you have ever met?”

He responded, “Literally nothing. The fact that I said that is one of my biggest regrets of my career & it still follows me 4 years later which sucks. I plan on talking about it more in depth when I film my review of REM, all I can hope is that people listen with an open mind.”

James is now being called out by Ariana‘s fans as a liar for calling her rude in the first place.
