Ariana Grande has shared a personal story of objectification that most women can relate to — one of her boyfriend’s fans had no problem referring to the singer as a “piece of meat” right in front of her.

The “Side to Side” singer shared her story via Twitter Tuesday, when heading out to get a bite to eat with Mac Miller resulted in the songstress being objectified by the well-meaning fan.

 

"He was loud and excited and by the time M was seated in the driver's seat, he was literally almost in the car with us," Ariana recounted. "I thought all of this was cute and exciting until he said 'Ariana is sexy as hell man. I see you, I see you hitting that!!!'"

"Hitting that? The f—k??" she continued. "This may not seem like a big deal to some of you but I felt sick and objectified. I was also sitting right there when he said it."

 

The 23-year-old went on to explain how “quiet and hurt" she felt from the comment, believing these are the "kinds of moments that contribute to women's sense of fear and inadequacy."

"I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilize for his pleasure," she wrote. "I'm an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect."

She also spoke on young people excusing the behavior and feeling a little too at ease with speaking to each other this way, even if the troublesome comment is said with good intentions.

"We need to talk about these moments openly because they are harmful and they live on inside of us as shame," she concluded.

"We need to share and be vocal when something makes up feel uncomfortable because if we don't, it will just continue. We are not objects or prizes. We are QUEENS."
