Top pop star Ariana Grande is getting a lot of criticism these days–after apparently yelling (on video), “I hate Americans! I hate America!” while in a donut shop.

The video, which was leaked a few days after the incident, also shows Grande and a male companion licking some donuts (which they hadn’t purchased) that were sitting on display on top of the counter at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, California.

The owner of Wolfee Donuts, Joseph Marin, was apparently “furious” that anyone, especially an A-list celebrity like Grande, would exhibit such boorish behavior in his store.

“A customer out there could have got sick,” he explained.

Grande first gained widespread exposure in 2009, when she starred on Disney Channel’s TV show, “Victorious.” But she skyrocketed to fame as a singer in 2013–and, since then, she’s released five number one hits, which earned her the distinction of being the most successful music artist of 2014.

Shortly after landing in hot water, Grande took to social media to profusely apologize for her anti-American tirade.

“I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American,” she wrote. “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.”

Instead of stopping there, she continued, making a stance against obesity in America:

“The fact that the United States has the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry.”

By licking donuts and unleashing an anti-American tirade, apparently.

According to Marin, Grande has not yet apologized to him or his employees, who served the “rude” Grande at Wolfee Donuts.

Wolfee Donuts has also been knocked down a grade by the health inspector, for apparently allowing Grande and her friend to lick the donuts in question. But things seemed to work out okay for them: they reported they’ve “tripled” their business, thanks to their role in the infamous Ariana Grande video.

So much for working at the “happiest place on earth”: in January, Disney laid off hundreds of employees–and replaced them with cheaper foreign workers, who have temporary H-1B “guest worker” visas.

And worse, Disney isn’t the only one.

In fact, increasing numbers of companies nationwide are stepping up to the plate to can American workers, and replace them with temporary workers here on those H-1B visas.

So far, the H-1B program–which brings educated guest workers to American shores for a term of three to six years–is killing off so many American jobs that Congress has begged Obama to investigate the problems with this program.

So far, Obama has refused every single time.

H-1B foreign guest workers are, by their very nature, substantially less expensive than American workers–both because they’re regulated differently and, because these workers require a work visa to come to the country in the first place, are far more likely to take the same job at a lower salary. Which means more money for corporate profit.

Ron Hira, a professor at Howard University who has testified before Congress on the importance of protecting American jobs, explains what the problem is:

“H-1B guest workers are cheaper than American workers and… any company would be foolish not to take advantage of this highly lucrative business model that has been inadvertently created by Congress and multiple presidential administrations,” Hira explains. “Of course, this business model is paid for by destroying the livelihoods and dignity of tens of thousands of American workers. The costs are also borne by American taxpayers, through foregone tax revenue and the additional social services that need to be provided for those newly unemployed American workers.”

This problem’s only getting worse, as more and more companies see that they can save money by bringing foreign workers to America to take foreign jobs.

Which, apparently, is just the way Obama likes it.
