The mother of a concertgoer killed during the Manchester Arena attack has called for Ariana Grande's now-fiancé Pete Davidson to "publicly apologize" for a joke he previously made about the incident.
Davidson reportedly joked that the incident must have confirmed to Grande that she was at a new level of fame, as “Britney Spears didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.” His gag came five months after the attack, which killed 22 and left 59 injured.
“For anyone to joke about this situation is disgusting and I think he should publicly apologize for it. The families will find it equally as disgusting," Hodgson told the tabloid. “We don’t need jokes about it, there have been plenty around, and it’s heartbreaking to hear every day. But for someone so famous to be doing it and now to be with Ariana, it’s outrageous. I think she would be horrified, too.” Grande has also previously spoken about how she now suffers from PTSD as a result of the attack. [NYLON]
