While she described herself as "saddened" by the display, she admitted she was "not surprised".

Pop sensation Ariana Grande has been dropping hints about additional US Sweetener tour dates and upcoming music releases on social media.

Some concertgoers at Grande's Sweetener tour stop in Atlanta on Friday found themselves having to listen to an anti-gay diatribe by a couple of men outside the venue who set up a microphone beneath a rainbow banner that had the word "Pride" crossed out.

Ariana's fans were thankful for her sweet words and echoed the same sentiments on how love will always trump hate.

Several fans confronted the protester, pointing out that June is Pride month and asking him: "What kind of Christianity is this?"

In a separate video, fans jeered at the man as he was escorted off the premises. There were clips showing the crowd singing, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye".

If you're already worrying about what to do with your time after Stranger Things season three has been and gone, fret not. Netflix and video games have cross-pollinated before.

She directed her fans to go check out an episode of "Black Mirror" starring Miley Cyrus - and ended her caption saying, "Also my hair is down again".

'One of their headsets was taken out and tossed'.

Grande later replied to the first video capturing the protest. Proud of you all for not engaging violently. Previous year also, she wrote a love-filled letter to her LGBTQ fans in order to celebrate the Pride month.

Ariana is now on her Sweetener tour that sees her perform today, 10 June 2019, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Overall, the whole album is stuffed with clever anecdotes brought to you straight from the process of falling in love, getting your heart broken, doing your best to get over it and falling back in love with yourself.
