The thing that surprised me the most from this story is the fact that Ariana Grande is allegedly a vegan. I’m not sure how that’s possible when you’re lugging around 90 pounds of horse mane on the top of your head, but I guess her vegan principles don’t apply to appearance.
Earlier this week, Ari unleashed a signature drink at Starbucks called the Cloud Macchiato, which she then tried to suggest as a vegan option by using soy milk. Of course the real vegans were watching from the sidelines waiting to drag her by the ponytail for telling lies, because the Cloud Macchiato can NEVER be a vegan option since it includes dairy.
In her never ending quest at doing the most, Ariana posed with a bunch of dogs while sucking on a cold version of the Cloud Macchiato through a straw with the hashtag #trythesoyversion on Twitter. However, VegNews reports that a spokesperson for Starbucks revealed to them that even if they take Ari’s suggestion and use soy instead of regular milk, it won’t make a difference because the beverage ain’t for vegans.
A spokesperson for Starbucks has confirmed to VegNews that the Cloud Macchiato cannot be made vegan, even if soy milk is used in place of dairy milk, as the foam is made with egg whites.
After people found out that Ari was pulling their dicks by trying to destroy their ultra-clean living, Vegan Twitter ran up on her with a pair of brass knuckles to express their disappointment.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't @ArianaGrande Vegan? And our new Starbucks cloud powder is made from Egg Whites and Rice Protien?
These two bits of information do not compute. pic.twitter.com/Y43UHwj63n

Ariana Grande could've used her collab with Starbucks to create a plant based drink that would influence people to make better choices for animals & the planet, but instead she came out with a drink that literally has egg and butter in it. pic.twitter.com/dY1knSIDYG

Unfortunately Ariana probably can’t hear their cries over the sound of all of that Starbucks money funneling into her bank account.
While vegans are upset, the rest of her fan base are gladly sucking up that sugary shit and are awaiting for the moment when Ariana and Starbucks release an IV drip containing nothing but an endless supply of Cloud Macchiato goodness. And don’t expect Ariana to reply to the cry of the vegans anytime soon, because she’s probably still knocked out from the dinner at the Brazilian steakhouse Starbucks treated her to last night for convincing people to buy some shit they’d been drinking for years at a higher price. She truly is the genie of marketing.
