Ariana licked the donuts because she hates childhood obesity.

The world scrunched up its collective face yesterday when video footage of Ariana Grande licking a donut she had not purchased hit TMZ. 

The video, which fans have expressed huge disappointment over, shows the 22 year old singer waiting until a store clerk turns away before licking some donuts which had been left out. She can also be heard saying "I hate Americans. I hate America" on the footage. 

She has since issued an apology but many are still not impressed.  

Ariana delved into a long winded tangent about childhood obesity rates and did not even address the actual scandal of licking the donuts. 

Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rates in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies.

We're actually not sure if Ariana is apologising or running for president. 

The cashier involved in the incident has since said Ariana was "really rude". Police are now investigating the incident.
