Grande shared a photo of herself and her late grandfather to mark the 4th anniversary of his passing. “Miss n love u forever my best friend #4years,” she wrote. Davidson commented, “omg what a cutie,” and fans, assuming he was talking about Grande, accused him of being inappropriate. “Wrong timing wtf,” one wrote. Davidson commented a second time, explaining to one fan he wasn’t referring to Grande. “Are you guys all insane?” he wrote. “I was talking about how cute her grandpa is. What’s wrong with that? You guys will really look for anything to attack people. It’s sad.”
Davidson did not appear to be too bothered by the experience. Next Instagram Grande shared, he was back to his usual ways, commenting and celebrating Grande’s grandparents’ relationship.
