Transcript for Ariana Grande Apologizes for 'I Hate America' Comments
Welcome back to "Gma" and time now for "The speed feed." And that trouble for pop star Ariana grande, apologizing for her comments about hating America that were caught on camera and T.J. Holmes is in the social square with that. Good morning, T.J. Strahan, she's in trouble here, all right, and authorities are investigating, not just because of what she said, but because of what she does in this video. She is seen apparently licking doughnuts at a doughnut shop that she then does not buy. Then you hear her I hate America. Right now she's got a pretty good reason to hate surveillance cameras. ? I got one less problem ? This morning singer Ariana grande is waking up with one more problem. Apologizing for this. I hate America. Reporter: Surveillance video surfacing Tuesday first obtained by TMZ capturing her comments while visiting a doughnut shop in lake elsinore made on the fourth of July. What the Is that. I hate America. Reporter: It's not just the comments. Police working with public health officials investigating the video in which they describe her actions as appearing to maliciously lick doughnuts. To me I don't care what she is. What she's doing is wrong. Reporter: But it's her seemingly unpatriotic words causing the most outrage all over the internet. One person tweeting good-bye, Ariana grande. You don't need to stay in this country. Another writing Ariana grande, you need help packing for Russia. In a lengthy apology grapdz telling ABC news I am extremely proud to be an American. What I said in a private moment with my friend who was buying the doughnuts was taken out of context. She goes on, as an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things. However, I should have known better in how I expressed myself. ? This is the part when I break free ? Reporter: Hoping to now break free in this latest incident and move forward. Now, in her apology, she didn't address the alleged licking. But Strahan, get this, we talked about the investigation. It's not her that could be in trouble. It's the restaurant, the doughnut shop, there are rules, health codes against leaving food out that could be breathed on, coughed on, sneezed on or licked. The doughnut shop actually lost its "A" grade and went down to a "B." Maliciously licked. That's a good lesson to keep everything in the case, T.J. All right. We'll be right back, everybody.
