An Ariana Grande White House Gig Was Cancelled Due to Doughnutgate

Ariana Grande was banned from performing at the White House last year after her infamous, unpatriotic display of doughnut-lickery.

The cache of hacked Democratic National Committee emails, released by WikiLeaks on Friday, July 22, shows that the White House vetoed Grande’s performance after she was caught licking a doughnut and denouncing America on surveillance camera last fall.

Us Weekly reports:

“Can we also vet Arianna Grande?” DNC Finance Chair Zachary Allen wrote in an email, misspelling the singer’s name. In response, a long, detailed break-down of the pop star’s controversy was circulated among several senior staffers.

“Ariana Butera – video caught her licking other peoples’ donuts while saying she hates America; Republican Congressman used this video and said it was a double standard that liberals were not upset with her like they are with Trump who criticized Mexicans; cursed out a person on Twitter after that person used an offensive word towards her brother,” a Lexis-Nexis search sent to several White House officials on Sept. 10 reads.
