Tragically, rapper Mac Miller was found dead of an apparent overdose at his Studio City, CA home on Friday. Miller, who was open about his struggles with substances, is being mourned by fans and fellow hip-hop artists alike. Unfortunately for Mac’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande, some people’s mourning takes the form of blaming her for his death. Ariana, who posted a photo of Miller on Instagram last night, had to shut off her comments due to some hate she was receiving according to People.
Ariana and Mac were together for two years, and broke up after Mac drunkenly crashed his car back in May. A quick second later, she went on to get engaged to SNL’s Pete Davidson. Some of Mac’s fans, who seem to be way into assigning blame to people with high ponytails, went in on her for breaking up with him. She wasn’t hearing or reading that and said so. The anti-Ariana crowd reportedly went in on her via her most recent IG posts. Hence her flicking the off button on comments. Here’s a heart-warming sampling of trollery (via vt).
Grips need to be gotten by these folks. Don’t worry, Grande’s High Ponytail Fan Brigade came to her defense on both Instagram and Twitter.
The first reaction of some people is to blame Ariana Grande for Mac Miller’s death to the point she had to deactivate her instagram comments. All she did was to remove herself from a toxic situation. She wanted him sober. There is nothing wrong with that.

The only statement she’s made about her ex’s death is the tribute photo of him that she posted. A source tells UsWeekly she’s heartbroken over Mac Miller’s death:
“Her entire family is in shock too. They all grew close to Mac during his relationship with Ari. He was a huge part of her life, and they always shared such a special bond. She wanted nothing but positivity in Mac’s life after they broke up.”
Ariana has been through it lately. Donut-licking jokes aside, her concert was bombed and 22 too many fans of hers were killed. And now her ex, with whom it sounds like she was still good friends, has passed away. It’s really only her fault if she’s suddenly begun a side business dealing copious amounts of drugs to her ex-boyfriends. We can probably guess she hasn’t.
