Teen Ariana Grande’s sexualizing video clip went viral 

A YouTube user by the name of Skarlett Akira shared a clip of Ariana Grande from her famous show ‘Victorious'( Fans claim the video clearly proves the sexualizing of the 29-year-old singer who was a teen back then. 

The video stated in a bedroom Grande was sticking her toes and fingers in her mouth while looking into the camera. She was lying upside down in the bed. Moreover, mourning, squeezing a potato and splashing water on the face and chest while saying, ” Mmm, I’m thirsty”. 

Fans address these actions as certainly in a sexualized tone. For them, it’s extremely inappropriate to portray a teenager like this. However, the makers claimed the show was a comedy and the actions are totally innocent.

As per the reports of Deadline, Dan Schneider, the writer and director of the show has been removed from Nickelodeon. In, 2018 he had multiple complaints of abusive behaviour. So, Grande’s fans are pretty sure about the abuse she faced while working on the network.
