“Seeing a lot of ‘but look how you portray yourself in videos and in your music! you're so sexual!’ .... please hold.. next tweet... i repeat expressing sexuality in art is not an invitation for disrespect !!! just like wearing a short skirt is not asking for assault,” Grande tweeted on Wednesday, December 28. “Women's choice. ♡ our bodies, our clothing, our music, our personalities..... sexy, flirty, fun. it is not. an open. invitation. You are literally saying that if we look a certain way, we are yours to take. But we are not !!! It's our right to express ourselves.”

The Grammy winner previously stated that she felt “hurt” after the male fan made her feel “sick and objectified.”

“I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilize for his pleasure,” Grande wrote in her initial post Tuesday evening. “I’m an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect. … It hurts my heart that so many young people are so comfortable enough using these phrases and objectifying women with such ease.”

Grande concluded her post on Tuesday by saying that women should be able to speak up about their own experiences and “be vocal when something makes us feel uncomfortable.”
