What a tragedy.
Ariana Grande and Starbucks recently teamed up for a surprise collaboration announcing a Cloud Macchiato. The drink can be ordered hot or cold and has two variations, the Caramel Cloud Macchiato and the Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato. While mnay Ariana Grande fans were excited about drinking a beverage so close to the star, others have called her out since the supposed vegan drink, isn't really vegan at all.
“I love animals more than I love most people, not kidding. But I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-round happier person," the "God Is A Woman" previously stated about her choice to not eat animal byproducts. "It is tricky dining out, but I just stick to what I know – veggies, fruit and salad – then when I get home I’ll have something else.”
A fan commented on Starbuck's promotion of the drink, asking if it can be ordered in vegan but received a response they never expected. "Sorry, no. The cloud powder cold foam contains egg and milk and the sauce contains dairy," the coffee house responded.
Ariana hasn't responded to the backlash over her drink, but we think the obvious move here is to just opt out of the Cloud foam and the sauce.
