Ariana Grande Calls Out “Disrespectful” Dude For Treating Her Like “A Piece Of Meat”

Ariana Grande has called out a dude who objectified her as “a piece of meat” in a recent run-in involving her and her boyfriend, Mac Miller.

Taking to Twitter, Grande tells fans that she was picking up some food with Miller last night, when a young boy followed them to their car to tell Miller that he was “a big fan”, but that’s apparently when things took a turn for the worst.

“He was loud and excited and by the time M was seated in the driver’s seat he was literally almost in the car with us,” Grande says. “I thought all of this was cute and exciting until he said, ‘Ariana is sexy as hell, man. I see you, I see you hitting that!

“Hitting that? The fuck??”

Grande goes on to say that she “felt sick and objectified” following the incident, and has “felt really quiet and hurt since that moment”.

“Things like [this] happen all the time and are the kinds of moments that contribute to women’s sense of fear and inadequacy. I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilise for his his pleasure. I’m an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect,” she writes.

“We are not objects or prizes. We are QUEENS.”

Since posting a note about the incident (which you can read in full below), Grande has returned to Twitter to say that she’s received messages from people saying, “But look how you portray yourself in videos and in your music! You’re so sexual!”

Replying to this, Grande says, “Expressing sexuality in art is not an invitation for disrespect !!! just like wearing a short skirt is not asking for assault.

“Women’s choice. our bodies, our clothing, our music, our personalities….. sexy, flirty, fun. it is not. an open. invitation.

“You are literally saying that if we look a certain way, we are yours to take. But we are not !!! It’s our right to express ourselves.”

Earlier this year, Grande confirmed that she will be bringing her Dangerous Woman tour to Australia.
