Earlier this week, Ariana Grande's fiancé Pete Davidson came under fire, after a joke he made about the Manchester terror attack resurfaced.
He reportedly made the joke during a stand-up comedy gig at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles five months ago. Pete and Ariana weren't dating at the time.
Ariana has taken to Twitter to break her silence. A fan called Oscar tweeted saying what Pete did was 'not funny, just rude.'
I respect Ariana and I want her to be happy and everything, but she was just broken after the Manchester bombing, so I don’t know why she is still with Pete, like yeah he made that joke a while ago, but like it’s not funny, it’s just rude. This is my opinion.

Ariana has said that Pete's joke was 'unfortunate' and that she 'didn't find it funny.'
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

Pete has yet to comment.
The terror attack tragically took the lives of 22 people on May 22nd 2017.
