Ariana Grande’s donut licking stunt in a Lake Elsinore donut shop is now being investigated by police, it has been reported.
As ENTmania! previously reported, the singer was caught on video licking donuts for sale with her supposed backup dancer boyfriend without buying them … and afterwards blurting out ‘I hate America’ when a new batch of donuts was brought out. People who saw the video only took offence to the ‘I hate America’ part of the video – surprisingly – and so Grande apologized for that and not for her unhygienic behavior.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lake Elsinore police and Riverside County public health officials launched an investigation into the video, which they described as showing Grande and her male companion ‘maliciously lick’ the donuts. This investigation resulted in the donut shop being downgraded to B rating for ‘incorrectly’ placing the donuts on top of the display case instead of inside it, leaving them exposed to the tongues of customers.
Grande’s rep had no comment when contacted about the investigation.
