New England Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon, in the midst of preparing for the Pats’ Week 1 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, called out pop star Ariana Grande with a tweet that blames her for Mac Miller’s death.
Replying to the news that Grande plays tribute to Miller on the 10-year anniversary re-release of her album Yours Truly, Judon shockingly said it’s the 30-year-old’s “fault that he’s dead.”
Grande dated Miller from 2016 until 2018, which was the year he passed away at the age of 26-years-old.
“Absolutely no one cares. Don’t be sad now just because he’s dead it’s your fault,” Judon said in a tweet to his 122,000-plus followers.
Judon wasn’t the only one with this sort of an opinion, as another quote tweet saying “I hope she knows she’s going to hell” has racked up over 76,000 likes (at the time of this writing). Many others shared similar sentiments, while there were also plenty of others who defended Grande.
The tribute in question comes on the track “Yours Truly”, which was the first single on the 2013 album. In a new video of the song posted to YouTube, the words “Feat. Mac Miller” linger as the rest of the screen goes black during the closing moments of the video.
Miller, a Grammy-nominated rapper who released six studio albums during his career (one of which was posthumously), passed away in September 2018 due to an accidental overdose.
His final album Swimming was released just about a month prior to his death and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
As for Judon, the 31-year-old outside linebacker is a four-time Pro Bowler who has been with the Patriots since the 2021 season. Judon was drafted out of Grand Valley State in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.
