When the hit Nickelodeon show ‘Victorious’ ended, fans were outraged that the show didn’t end the way they felt it deserved to end, and some ended up taking it out on the cast members. One fan took to Ariana Grande’s Ask.Fm account to say that they felt it was because of her new show ‘Sam and Cat’ that Victorious was cancelled.
Ariana obviously took offense to this and proceeded to blame the entire thing on Victoria Justice, saying, “Sweetheart the only reason Victorious ended is because 1 girl didn’t want to do it. She chose to do a solo tour instead of a cast tour. If we had done a cast tour Nickelodeon would have ordered another season of Victorious while Sam and Cat filmed simultaneously but she chose otherwise. I’m sick of this bs.”
Although the Q & A was quickly deleted from Ariana's' account, Victoria Justice took to her twitter in response, saying, “Some people would throw some1 they consider a friend under the bus just 2 make themselves look good. #StopBeingAPhony #IfTheyOnlyKnew.”
This caused a raging twitter war among fans, but both parties quickly removed the offending tweets and messages, with Ariana informally apologizing to fans about causing such a problem. It’s clear in this scenario that Ariana was trying to deflect the blame that she was getting from fans, but throwing the blame on her co-star and friend was not the right thing to do. Hopefully, she has apologized to Victoria as well, and the incident doesn’t dissolve into another so-called ‘feud’.
