Fans Outraged Over Ariana Grande’s Non-Vegan Coffee Endorsement

Last week, popstar Ariana Grande announced a collaboration with Starbucks for their new drink, the Cloud Macchiato, an espresso shot with milk topped with foam.

Iced Caramel Cloud Macchiato.

Because Ariana has been vegan for six years now, many assumed that the beverage was vegan-friendly. Her advice to try the soy milk version added more confusion that had people believing the coffee could be made dairy-free.

The drink comes in caramel and cinnamon flavors, and both require egg white powder for the foam. Meanwhile, the syrup in the caramel version has butter, heavy cream, and milk. It is virtually impossible to veganize.

Customers weren’t the only ones bugged by this, as a number of coffeehouse employees also took their rants to social media. Some baristas have had to deal with people who wanted to customize the Cloud Macchiato, which is a beverage that’s already hard to prepare as is.

Here are some of the comments on Twitter:

A representative for Ariana Grande has already been contacted to comment.
