Bishop Charles H. Ellis III Apologizes for Groping Ariana Grande


Tongues were wagging yesterday after Bishop Charles H. Ellis III shockingly groped Ariana Grande on live TV after her performance at Aretha Franklin's 6 and 1/2 hour funeral in Detroit.

Bishop apologizes for getting handsy with Ariana...

Bishop Ellis tells the AP
“It would never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast. … I don’t know I guess I put my arm around her. Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar but again, I apologize.”
“I hug all the female artists and the male artists. Everybody that was up, I shook their hands and hugged them. That’s what we are all about in the church. We are all about love.”
“The last thing I want to do is to be a distraction to this day. This is all about Aretha Franklin.”
Bishop also apologized for saying when he saw Ariana's name on the program he thought it was a new menu item from Taco Bell.
“I personally and sincerely apologize to Ariana and to her fans and to the whole Hispanic community. When you’re doing a program for nine hours you try to keep it lively, you try to insert some jokes here and there.”

Everywhere else the story is her dress was too short. Bill Clinton was smiling the whole time and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson didn't pay any attention to her.
A black blog reports a pastor got handsey.

Meanwhile Fantasia and Jennifer took it to church and made Aretha proud. Ok, Snitch!

He did not respond to any other singer the way he did with Ariana. People were talking about it and I'm glad he apologized. Pastor Williams need to also apologize for that Eulogy that had nothing to do with Aretha. Getting up there and insulting black American Culture. Sounding like Bill Cosby used to sound before he for exposed. *paints nail emoji*

Sidenote.. SNITCH what happened to the new site? You're back to this hard to comment interface.

Ariana was so out of place, and that pork chop eating preacher was way out of order. He knew good well his behavior was disgusting. I don't know how people can still show up and go to church to hear these charlatans preach.

Preachers are not supposed to be touching women like that ever

He did pull hee in for a full frontal hug AFTER he fingered and manipulated her breast for a while 2 minutes. She tried to ease away but he wouldn't let her. I did not have a chance to watch but saw a close up video and this 60 year old man of God was fondling that girl his daughters age.

He continously massage her boob as if giving her a mamogram.
He got off doing ot in front of thousands of people and them not noticing and also with her saying nothing to expose him as I would have.
The huge was to seal his erection with her breasts on his chest.

Distguisting to say the least. He says again I apologize I didn't read I am sorry not once. He should face huge backlash and removal for that because it gave light to what may be going on in his personal life as well as his church.

Thing is I don't care for Ariana and this will give her more attention as the massacre did and dating that druggie she is dating.

I would want to think because of her size and age he may of under estimated the reason Aretha loved her singing and wanted her to perform at the service. The taco bell shit was too far in front the whole world. But he mighta been ignorant to the fact that was inappropriate, as was her lil LBD she probably didn't realize you don't wear teeny dresses to church.

Ariana Grande should of traded her small dress for Cisely Tyson's large hat and that way she would be fully dressed and the unfortunate person seated behind that ginormous configuration could see the service.

The way he grabbed her made me feel uncomfortable AND she was trying to pull away. PLUS she is Italian, not Latino. I hate ignorant, misogynistic pastors. Aretha planned her entire funeral and wanted her to perform.

Well with practically no clothes on you'd expect she would be looked at like a ham samich. Good thing she sang early after 7 hours somebody woulda met her in the hall way and mistaken her for a full sized snack. Taken a bite right out that ass. Then beat the hell out Pete if he dared say anything.

Dat heifer should’ve dressed for the occasion. Looking like she should’ve been on the 8 Mile stroll instead of church.

Bless her heart for showing up clueless and singing her heart out while these old men stared her down like a chalupa. Grabbing her up like, "com heeere geerl where you think you going" His wife needed to get up and zonk him on the head with her pocketbook.

LOL @ shockingly groped! I really didn't even see what the hell was going on until somebody said something. Looking closer, she is flat chested and maybe his hand didn't know he was touching her like that... I'm just observing so don't lose your Cheerios over it. And her singing was lackluster with that night club dress on at Aretha's funeral.

This preacher should have never allowed this blasphemy in the church in the first place. This young lady did a nice rendition of Aretha's classic, 'You make me feel like a natural woman,' but this type of song, dance and dress didn't belong in the House of God. True 'born again Christians' know what I'm talking about.

Maybe he was trying to make her feel welcomed anyway after bombing and on the verge of getting no claps. The media forgot to mention and zoom in on how Bill salivating at the thought of leaving his jeez all over that black dress.

I'm a non-believer, and I would have never shown up to someone who was mother, grandmother, and great grandmother's funeral, with a short dress on with my twat hanging out. It has nothing to do with being a christian it has everything to do with respect, and common sense.

@12:33 AM You're correct, but this goes back to the 'lukewarm' pastor who allowed this secular music to be sung in the house of God. A church is not a night club nor a dance hall.
This preacher is an idiot anyway. I thought his 'Taco Bell' comment was borderline racist. Black people would be in an uproar if a white minister associated an obvious African American name or stage name to Popeye's.
