Ariana Grande Defends Fiancé For ‘Unfortunate’ Manchester Bombing Joke

Ariana Grande has defended her fiancé for joking about the deadly terror attack which hit one of her concerts in Manchester, England last year—but said she didn't find the “unfortunate” joke funny. Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson joked in a set five months after the terror attack—which killed 22 people—about how famous Grande had become, saying: “Britney Spears didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.” Davidson made the joke before the couple started dating in May—they confirmed they had become engaged last month. Responding to a fan on Twitter asking why she was staying with Davidson despite the poor taste joke, Grande wrote: “This has been v tough & conflicting on my heart. he uses comedy to help ppl feel better ab how f-ed up things in this world are. we all deal w trauma differently. I of course didn’t find it funny. it was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious but it was unfortunate.” Grande has talked about the PTSD she suffers from the attack, saying she doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to talk about the event without crying.
