Here's why I find this messed up.
Last year, Pete Davidson rocked a stand-up routine, and one of his jokes was not realizing how famous Ariana Grande actually was until the Manchester bombing. He literally said that during his routine, and followed it up with "Britney Spears didn't have a terrorist attack at her concert."
Obviously, comedians are known to push the line. So is it shocking he'd say something like that? Probably not. BUT, of course, Arianators remembered that it happened, so they're not happy about it, and they Tweeted Ari to let her know.
And she responded...by completely sticking up for her mans. (No, seriously.)
this has been v tough & conflicting on my heart. he uses comedy to help ppl feel better ab how f-ed up things in this world are. we all deal w trauma differently. I of course didn’t find it funny. it was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious but it was unfortunate— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) July 5, 2018
But I guarantee you if someone like me said that, who ALSO doesn't do emotions and makes awkward jokes because of it, she'd refuse to have anything to do with me or a station I'm on.
I'm not saying Pete should be crucified or not for his joke, I'm more or less saying it's pretty interesting how when someone gets in a relationship with someone else, they'll stick up for even the dumbest decisions they make.
