AceShowbiz - Michael Rapaport won't easily back down just because he received mass criticism for insulting Ariana Grande online. Instead of apologizing to the pop superstar, the "Friends" alum has doubled down on his insult by dragging her ex, Pete Davidson, into this.
The actor took to Instagram on Friday, December 21 to share an image of the then-engaged couple posing for the red carpet at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. However, the image was photoshopped so that Michael's face covered Pete's, making it seem like the 48-year-old was the one who posed beside Ariana.
"When Thank You,Next is really life!!! Always Stay Disruptive! Shout to all the Women at Starbucks" he wrote in the caption.
Unsurprisingly, his post was met with criticism from fans of the "Thank U, Next" hitmaker who thought that his attempted joke wasn't funny. "I need to unsee what I just saw you're gross," one commenter posted as another called him "pathetic" and wondered why he came for Ariana. "You remind me of... one of those rlly horny gross sexist old white men... oh wait.... that is you," one other snarked.
Ariana herself has yet to address the "Prison Break" alum's recent attack.
This came less than three days since Michael was under fire for attacking Ariana's look on social media. "Ariana Grande is 27 acts 12, you take off those boots she hides her legs in, the cat eye make up and the genie pony tale," he said. "I think there's hotter women working the counter at Starbucks no disrespect to Starbucks." Following the backlash, Michael took to his Twitter to address the criticism, but he didn't seem sorry one bit.
The "Bang Bang" hitmaker apparently wasn't the only A-lister whom Michael attacked since he also came for Kim Kardashian. Responding to a picture of the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star sporting a bikini, he wrote, "You hate yourself." While Kim has yet to respond to his comment, Noah Cyrus has come to her defense. "bruh. Why you soooo mad. Stop attacking women for likes," the singer said.
