"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.
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."
