Singing sensation Ariana Grande is facing major heat over a recent social media post where she made a “joke” about the late JonBenet Ramsey. Fans called her “tasteless” and “insensitive” for joking about the 6-year-old beauty queen who was murdered in her Colorado home.

According to Fox News, Grande wrote, “I can’t WAIT for this to be your Halloween look,” on a friend’s post about Ramsey having the most magazine covers. Her friend replied, “Working on it already.”

The 26-year-old music artist responded to the backlash via Twitter. She apologized for her controversial remark.

“Yeah no I deleted it very quickly and understand that it’s not at all funny. this was out of pocket and I sincerely apologize,” the pop star tweeted in response.

Her apology wasn’t taken well from fans either. Many called her out for leaving the post up for nearly a day and not deleting it instantly. People insisted she “did something wrong” and only deleted the post after it got negative publicity.
