Susan Sarandon Defends Ariana Grande's Bizarre Doughnut Licking On Twitter

The 68-year-old actress encouraged her followers to lick a doughnut "in solidarity" with Grande.

Ariana Grande confused the world yesterday when a security video showing her  licking doughnuts and saying she hates America and Americans surfaced online, but she's got the support of at least one person.

That person is none other than Susan Sarandon. The 68-year-old actress expressed her support for the "Problem" singer on Twitter, encouraging her followers to "lick a doughnut in solidarity with @ArianaGrande. A sweet, talented, true American." 

We're not lying. She actually tweeted that. We don't even know what's going on anymore. (But on the flip side, we do love doughnuts, so we're not totally opposed to her suggestion.)

Grande issued an apology for her words and actions, which took place at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, Calif., yesterday, saying she is "EXTREMELY proud to be an American" and "I love my country."

She also explained that "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 without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole." 

Actor Rob Lowe called the apology "#Lame" on Twitter, adding, "As my grandpa would say: 'Yeah, sure. Pull the other leg, it plays jingle bells!'"  

And the pint-sized pop star's doughnut drama is far from over. The Associated Press has reported police in Lake Elsinore are investigating the video with Riverside County public health officials. A cashier at the shop also told the AP Grande didn't buy the donuts she licked and said "she was really rude." 

Welp, looks like now she's got a problem.
