Ariana Grande Vs. Vegans of the Internet

Last week my boyfriend’s 13-year-old daughter was begging us to go to Starbucks to try Ariana Grande’s new drink, the Cloud Macchiato. After a #dadjoke (“Now, do we have to order that as a grande?”), we agreed to stop on the way to school to get our fix.
While Ariana and her whiny voice drives me NUTS, I had to give Starbucks credit for partnering with the celeb, knowing very well that teenie-boppers would beg their parents to try the $5 cup-o-cream.
That was until I found out Ariana was vegan. And the kicker…with Starbucks’ 87,000 drink combinations (fun fact), not one of them includes a vegan version of this new bev. It literally can’t be made. YIKES.
Like I said, I’m not an Ariana fan but apparently everyone knows she’s a vegan. Everyone except for me and the publicist dumb enough to hire her to promote “cloud powder” made with egg whites.
The #vegans took to Twitter to express their feelings (are we really surprised?) and the tweets are gold.
can u not dress up and act all quirky in the working class’ uniform lol? also can u publicly announce ur not vegan so that people stop using your name to spread veganism only for you to disappoint?

All I can say is, whoever is behind this partnership may have listened to “bad idea” one too many times…
