Ariana Grande called out for transmisogyny and blackface by gay publication



- Ariana Grande's new music video 'Thank U, Next' has been called out for promoting "Transmisogyny, heterosexual pride, and blackface"
- They point out Ariana’s backup dancer Scott Nicholson is playing a trans woman where we’re supposed to laugh at him for his feminine mannerisms.
- Take issue with her "modern blackface", by way of heavy bronzing, dark foundation, and digital coloring to make Ariana appear ethnic.
- Say she emphasizes her heterosexuality as a point of pride and empowerment, by making rumors of her lesbianism a punchline and later reinforcing she dates men in her scene with Coolidge.
- The writer of the article received so many death threats from Ariana fans they had to omit his name from the article.
