Grande gives a second apology for her comments in a YouTube video, recorded while she is recovering from oral surgery:
I feel like in the apology I posted, I missed my opportunity to sincerely apologize and express how I was feeling because I was too busy preaching about my issues with the food industry. I could have expressed myslef in a better way. Here I am apologizing again.
I’ve actually never been prouder to be an American, to be honest with you. Advances that we’ve made in the past couple of months and all the wonderful progressive things that have been going on, I’ve never been prouder of this country, actually. Seeing a video of yourself behaving poorly — that you have no idea was taken — is such a rude awakening, that you don’t know what to do. I was so disgusted with myself. I’d like to shove my face in a pillow. I apologize for my poor choice of word and for my behavior.
