Although Davidson is a comedian and uses his own life for material, he may have made some jokes that went a little too far at Grande’s expense.  During standup in Puerto Rico, Davidson said,  “Britney Spears didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert,” CNN reports.  The joke was in reference to a suicide bombing that occurred in Manchester, England during an Ariana Grande concert.

Grande suffered PTSD following the attack and didn’t find Davidson’s joke to be very funny. “I of course didn’t find it funny,” Grande wrote in a tweet. “It was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious but it was unfortunate.”

Davidson also caught heat for telling Howard Stern he was “proud” that Bill Clinton was caught checking out Grande during Aretha Franklin’s funeral, Daily Mail reports. Davidson went onto say he “felt bad” for the pastor accused of groping Grande.
