Michael Rapaport feels no need to apologize to Ariana Grande or Pete Davidson.
The comedian learned first hand Hell hath no fury like a fanbase scorn when he dissed Grande’s appearance on social media.
“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,” Rapaport recounted on “You Up with Nikki Glaser” and SiriusXM’s Comedy Central Radio. “And then [people] were like, this is sexist and it went on.”
When asked why he targeted Grande, Rapaport argued “this is f**king Ariana Grande’s fault,” in response to Davidson’s “suicide attempt note,” per E! News.
“I’m not apologizing for this s**t anyway!” he assured. “I was, like, because in twenty years she’s going to be like Mariah Carey, f**king up the lyrics to her own song, drunk at a New Year’s thing.”
Rapaport’s remarks may have you thinking he is on team Davidson, but he has just as much beef with Global’s “Saturday Night Live” star. “The Pete Davidson thing, I was annoyed with this f**king guy and his f**king suicide attempt note, and then not apologizing for it,” the 48-year-old said. “That really offended me.”
“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,” he continued. “We’re glad you’re good, but you freaked everybody out.”
Rapaport said Davidson’s behaviour was “sucker a** s**t.”
