One fan said, “the issue is that she doesn’t look like ariana, she does her makeup in order to look like her + photoshop to get a more accurate result. yes, it’s true she’s not going by ariana’s name or whatever, but the fact she’s posting content impersonating her is hella creepy.”
Another fan also called out the influencer for her past act of recreating Grande’s wedding photos after the singer married real estate agent Dalton Gomez in May 2021.
“She literally is trying to be Ariana. She purposely tries to speak like her and recreated her wedding photos?? someone’s wedding is a special moment in their life. & now she’s created an OF impersonating Ariana in a sexual way. it’s weird & not okay,” the follower wrote.
While criticizing Niemann’s antics has primarily been done by Grande fans, the “7 Rings” crooner has also spoken out to subtly condemn Niemann as well as other people who use her likeness to make money.
According to Buzz Feed, the “break up with your girlfriend, i’m Bored” singer took to her Instagram Stories to upload a video made by Jordan Firstman mocking those who make internet meme imitations. In the caption for the video. Ariana expressed her distaste for the fictitious portrayals of her, labeling it as “degrading.”
She said at the time, “Omg can [this meme video] please also double as your impression of the ponytail TikTok girls who think doing that Cat Valentine voice and that wearing winged eyeliner and a sweatshirt is doing a good impersonation of me… ’cause this really how it feels… ‘Degrading its entire value,’ I screamed.”
