Michael Rapaport has made it clear that he is not willing to apologize for the controversial comments he made about Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson.
While speaking to Nikki Glaser on You Up with Nikki Glaser, the comedian addressed the controversial comments he made towards Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. Referring to Pete Davidson’s suicide note, he said, “This is f***ing Ariana Grande’s fault.”
He added, “So I sent a tweet about Ariana Grande, I said something like, ‘She’s 25, she acts 12, without all the makeup, the high-heeled boots, she’s not as cute as my barista at Starbucks. No disrespect to Starbucks.’ And then [people] were like, this is sexist and it went on.”
The comedian said that after he wrote this, all of Grande’s fans came after him. He said, “And was like, I’m not apologizing for this s––t anyway! And I was, like, because in twenty years she’s going to be like Mariah Carey f–––––g up the lyrics to her own song, drunk at a New Year’s thing.”
Rapaport also added that he finds it annoying that Pete Davidson has not apologized after his own suicide situation. He said, “The Pete Davidson thing, I was annoyed with this f***ing guy and his f***ing suicide attempt note, and then not apologizing for it. That really offended me.”
He added, “The fact that he’s come back and didn’t acknowledge — yo to all my fans, to the New York City police department, to the people I work with and all my fans that were worried—I apologize for saying that.”
Giving his own example, he also said, “I had a little incident where I was in the hospital and I posted a picture of myself in a neck brace and the first thing I said was, ‘I’m fine, I’m good, don’t worry.'” Addressing Davidson directly, Rapaport directly said, “We’re glad you’re good, but you freaked everybody out.”
Grande’s album 7 Rings is going to be releasing soon.
