Ariana Grande fans have jumped to her defence after she was accused of Asian-fishing in a recent photoshoot.
The Positions singer is reported to have posted a set of images taken by LA-based photographer Katia Temkin, in which she’s seen wearing an oversized blazer and chunky platform heels with white bows in her hair.

TikToker Victoria Alexander went viral after sharing a video about the photoshoot, in which she said: ‘I’m not saying that Ariana Grande has moved on from Blackfishing to Asianfishing but I am saying it took me longer than expected to realise that this is her.’
