A concert in Manchester, England, by pop singer Ariana Grande was horrifyingly disrupted Monday night by an Islamist homicide bomber that killed 22 and wounded 59 of the artist’s fans.
In the wake of that terrible tragedy, some recalled an alleged quote from the singer in 2014 regarding her fan base that the pop star likely regrets today.
The New York Daily News reported in Sept. 2014 that, following a meet-and-greet with fans after a visit to a Manhattan radio station, Grande was overheard literally wishing death upon the young girls who had clamored for an autograph or selfie with the popular star.
“She did autographs and pics and was all smiles until she got into the elevator,” recalled a music industry insider. “And as soon as the doors shut she said, ‘I hope they all f***ing die.’”
Of course, that was three years ago, and though Grande has uttered other regrettable words in the intervening time period pertaining to her fans and her home country of America, she has since publicly embraced her many adoring young fans.
In fact, Grande seemed to take the blame for the murderous tragedy that befell her concert-goers in Manchester with a short and obviously heartbroken social media post in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attack.
Grande tweeted, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.”

In response to that tweet, Grande’s fans replied with a hashtag aimed at the singer that read #ThisIsNotYourFaultAriana in a bid to absolve her of whatever guilt she felt for the violence, according to Yahoo.
Meanwhile, Variety reported that Grande’s European tour, which had been suspended in its entirety immediately after the attack, will resume in France on June 7, but that several scheduled concerts between now and then had been cancelled, including two shows in London.
Other cancelled shows had been scheduled to take place in Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland.
“Due to the tragic events in Manchester, the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost,” read a statement from Grande’s management. “The London O2 shows this week have been canceled, as well as all shows through June 5 in Switzerland.”
“We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence,” the statement added. “Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together.”
