She may be tiny but Ariana Grande is no pushover. The singer has fired back at a troll’s misogynistic comments towards her “Dangerous Woman” music video, calling out the double standards of the music industry and society in general.

Not afraid to step up to haters, the singer made her opinions clear last year. In a GIF she posted to Instagram, the 22 year old dismissively waved out of a car, along with the caption “me @ body shaming / slut shaming & other misogynistic / negative comments.”

When another “fan” delivered up a sexist comment calling her a “whore” in response to her “Dangerous Woman” Visual 1 still from the upcoming music video on Facebook, Ariana went on the offensive again.

 

The commenter wrote, “Ariana all respect, but dangerous woman I loved but the trouble is that in [the music video] salts like a whore!” The commenter capped off his opinion with a sorry, not sorry, writing, “Sorry for the rudeness. I only said the truth. SORRY,”

 

Grande responded in the most perfect way possible, taking ownership of her own body and sexuality and shutting down the troll in no uncertain terms. “When will people stop being offended by women showing skin / expressing sexuality?” the singer asked in a reply on the comment. “Men take their shirts off / express their sexuality onstage, in videos, on Instagram, anywhere they want to… all. the. time. The double standard is so boring and exhausting. With all due respect, I think it’s time you get your head out of your ass.”

“Woman (sic) can love their bodies too.” the singer concluded.
