Ariana Grande's 'malicious' donut licking gets shop in trouble video

Ariana Grande was caught on video having a very odd moment in the donut store.

Ariana Grande's "malicious" doughnut licking has landed a California donut store in trouble.

Wolfee  Donuts in Lake Elsinore has had its health rating downgraded from an "A" to a "B" after the shop's owner sold surveillance video of the pint-sized pop star and her boyfriend contaminating the frosted treats to TMZ and complained to police.

In the video Grande looks disgusted when a clerk sets down a tray of doughnuts in front of her.

"What the ... is that? I hate Americans. I hate America," she says before licking the donuts after being egged on by her boyfriend and backup dancer, Ricky Alvarez.

After TMZ reported on the video on Wednesday Grande apologised for her anti-American remarks, saying she was just troubled by America's child obesity.

It's not clear what someone bothered by doughnuts was doing in a doughnut shop. Grande and Alvarez were at the store, which is open 24 hours, at around 11.30pm on Saturday.

Riverside County health inspectors say it's the shop's responsibility to have "food separated and protected from contamination".

The shop was also written up because its automatic dishwasher didn't properly sanitise utensils and for several minor violations, the Press Enterprise newspaper reported.

Wolfee Donuts has a week to fix the problems, at which time the store will be re-inspected. Until then, it has to display the "B" grade in a visible place.
