Ariana Grande will make her big-screen debut in the comedy sequel Zoolander 2! The news was revealed as a direct result of Grande’s “Donut-Gate,” in which, as Gossip Cop previously reported, the singer was caught on surveillance cameras at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, California seemingly licking donuts on display and saying on July Fourth, “I hate Americans. I hate America.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Susan Sarandon was one of the few celebrities to support Grande during the controversy, tweeting on Thursday, “lick a doughnut in solidarity with @ArianaGrande. A sweet, talented, true American.” In a subsequent interview with Vulture, Sarandon explained her quote by saying, “Well, I just worked with her. We did Zoolander 2 together, in Rome. She couldn’t be more professional or sweet.” She further defended Grande by stating, “Clearly [her remarks were] taken out of context,” and expressed that people should focus instead on the “effects of GMOs, which affect your health a lot more than licking a doughnut.” Sarandon ended by expressing, “She’s smart, and she’s a really great, very talented person. It’s just ridiculous they’re jumping on her the way they are.”

Zoolander 2, which was co-written and directed by Ben Stiller, also stars Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Penelope Cruz, and Kristen Wiig. As Gossip Cop previously reported, in addition to Grande’s cameo, Justin Bieber will also be in the comedy sequel, which is slated to hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
