While Rob Lowe called Ariana Grande's apology regarding her anti-American comments "#lame," other stars are coming to her aid.
Susan Sarandon showed her support for the "Problem" singer after footage was released of the 22-year-old pop star licking and spitting on a donut store's merchandise. 
"Today, lick a doughnut in solidarity with @ArianaGrande," the 68-year-old actress tweeted on Thursday. "A sweet, talented, true American."

In the video, a baker is seen bringing out a tray of freshly baked donuts, after which Grande is heard saying, "What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America. That's disgusting."
After the footage went viral, she issued an apology.
"I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I've always made it clear that I love my country," Grande said in a statement to ET. "What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words."
Meanwhile, the ladies of The View were eager to discuss the GRAMMY nominee's behavior on Thursday's show.

"America's not doing this to me, I'm doing this to me," Whoopi Goldberg said on The View in response to Grande's apology.  

Her co-host, Raven-Symone, seemed to be siding with the singer, saying "who hasn't" thought this about junk food from time to time.

"Why is she in a donut shop then?!" guest co-host Candace Cameron-Bure quipped.
As for Lowe, he also isn't buying Grande's apology. "As my grandpa would say: 'Yeah, sure. Pull the other leg, it plays jingle bells!' #Lame," the former Parks and Recreation star tweeted. "Cannot wait for the new Ariana Grande/Dixie Chicks jam to drop! #IActuallyLoveAmerica."
