Conservative writer and speaker Milo Yiannopoulos blasted pop singer Ariana Grande for the ‘pro-Islam’ stance she’s taken in the past. When you play with fire you’ll eventually get burned.
He used social media to go after the pop star shortly after an apparent Islamic State-influenced terrorist set off a suicide bomb at the entrance to her Manchester, England concert, resulting in 22 dead and dozens injured.
“Sadly, Ariana Grande is too stupid to wise up and warn her European fans about the real threats to their freedom and their lives,” Yiannopoulos, formerly a Breitbart News editor, posted to his Facebook page Tuesday.

“She will remain ferociously pro-immigrant, pro-Islam and anti-America. Makes you wonder whether they bombed to attack her or in solidarity,” he added.
At a 2015 concert, Grande announced that “I hate America,” and it wasn’t just Yiannopoulos who remembered — he was merely the most prominent person voicing his objections.
At a glance | Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande is a US pop star with a young fan base. She has been in showbusiness since her teens and first appeared on Broadway in 2008. Two years later, when she was 17, she was cast in a popular Nickelodeon show, Victorious, which followed the hallway antics of Hollywood stage school students.
Grande has an enormous fan base from her Nickelodeon days and, like One Direction, a large network on social media, with over 150 million followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
On 22 May 2017, over 22 people were killed and around 50 more injured by an explosion as crowds left her concert in Manchester. Home Secretary Amber Rudd described the incident as a barbaric attack.
“She will remain ferociously pro-immigrant, pro-Islam and anti-America. Makes you wonder whether they bombed to attack her or in solidarity.”
Yiannopoulos later added: “When will Ariana Grande stop feeling sorry for herself and condemn Islamic terror?”
He nonetheless received a lot of positive response to his Facebook post.
Ellen Sands replied, “My daughter and her friends stopped listening to her after she licked the donut ….now they see she’s just plain ignorant!”
Grande was caught on tape in 2015 entering a South California donut shop with friends, licking the items on display, putting them back and telling her companions, “I hate Americans … I hate America.”

But Joey Fennell posted what has become an all-too-familiar response to acts of terrorism committed by Islamists.
“This is not my post i cut/pasted it. all know the protocol by now –
1. Trumps fault.
2. This has nothing to do with extreme Islam.
3. The guy was a mentally ill ‘lone wolf’.
4. Those who object to points 1, 2, and 3 are racist bigots.
5. Change Facebook profile to flag of inflicted country.
6. Light some candles, hold a vigil and go on a peace march.
7. Wait for the next slaughter to happen.
