"Man ... saddened but not surprised by this one bit," Grande responded in a series of tweets Sunday. "i’m so sorry any of my fans had to encounter this. we will do our best to ensure this doesn’t happen again."
She added: "Proud of u all for not fighting / engaging violently. never worth it ... he is highly outnumbered. you are all so celebrated and loved and safe."
Ariana also pointed out that the protester "is highly outnumbered," telling her LGBTQ fans, "you are all so celebrated and loved and safe." She concluded, "also, he was doing the be alright choreo in his garage later that night, i promise."
On Saturday, Ariana revealed that she would be adding extra U.S. tour dates soon. "adding some more US dates for u ... truly excited and exceedingly grateful thank u for making this such a beautiful thing more info soon," she tweeted.
