Super fan Steve Bannon furious to learn that Ariana Grande fans not called “Aryans”

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon took to Twitter last night upon discovering that Ariana Grande’s fans call themselves “Arianators,” and not “Aryans.”

“I had always searched the tag #aryan, and – while I’m always pleased with the search results – I became increasingly confused that no Ari content popped up,” Bannon said. 

A supporter of Ariana Grande’s incredible vocals and sensual lyrics since the 2014 release of “My Everything,” Bannon admitted that learning of the fandom name was a huge blow to his perception of the pop chanteuse. 

“Such a missed opportunity if you ask me. Lowered my commitment to this fandom and certainly will make me reevaluate my tastes from here on out,” lamented the co-founder of Breitbart News. This was the last tweet that he posted on his popular Ariana stan Twitter, @Aryanaismykween14, before deactivating the account. 

Since joining Twitter in September 2015 after being inspired by her performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, he has gained over 60,000 followers. The account was briefly shut down in 2015 after Bannon spouted racist sentiments about Grande’s ex-boyfriend Big Sean, and he has since kept his white supremacist agenda to his personal account. 

Despite facing backlash for his past tweet, he insists that he still deeply cares about the well-being of Grande. After rapper and ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death, Bannon was reportedly devastated, tweeting, “We’re hurting for you Ari <3. Love, Steve.” 

Bannon’s support of Grande off Twitter is well documented; in 2016, he urged Trump to have her perform at the presidential inauguration, which she promptly declined. This past August, he obtained VIP backstage passes for Grande’s Sweetener tour, although she declined to meet with him then as well. 

While dismayed that there are less white supremacist Ari fans out there than he would like, Bannon concedes that he is still a huge fan and plans on reactivating his Twitter account within the week.

“This isn’t the first time Ariana and I haven’t seen eye to eye. She thinks that God is a Woman, and between you and me, that’s just baloney. Although I was disappointed by this revelation, I’m still an Aryan through and through.”
