Ariana Grande says she was sexually objectified by a male fan, and she’s speaking out about it.

The 23-year-old pop star took to Twitter late Tuesday night to express her “hurt” over an incident that she says took place while she was out with her boyfriend, Mac Miller.

Grande told her over 42 million Twitter followers that there was a “young boy” who followed them to their car and appeared to just want a chance to meet her. That was, she said, until he looked over at her boyfriend and said, “Ariana is sexy as hell man I see you, I see you hitting that!”

“This may not seem like a big deal to some of you,” Grande wrote to her fans. “But I felt sick and objectified… I’ve felt really quiet and hurt since that moment.”

Grande went on to say, “I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilize for his pleasure. I’m an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect.”

Grande said she felt she needed to speak out to let others know that language like this isn’t okay and should not be tolerated. “We need to share and be vocal when something makes us feel

    This girl is so full of herself and it’s actually pretty hilarious that she’s trying to make herself seem like a victim. Maybe then you can throw away your skimpy little outfits and dance moves and become a little more child appropriate. There’s people with bigger problems out there.

      Exactly, i believe she said something along the lines of “i hate Americans” then licked the donut and left. It was around July 4th as well.

    I understand what she’s saying, no one deserves that kind of comment in person. The guy was out of line. 

    However, if half your musical persona is based on your looks and your “sex appeal”…that’s a marketing problem and you should adjust it if you don’t like sexual responses to your sexual image. You’ve presented your self as an object, therefore you’re treated as one.
