What Ariana wore was an above the knee black dress and black stilettos. Critics are saying that this was inappropriate and disrespectful to wear to a funeral. We are guessing that Ariana didn’t read the Funeral Handbook (apparently there is one).
The headlines for this outrage have included the word funeral not church, but if the funeral was not held in a traditional church, would there be this much controversy? Are people hiding behind religion to chastise and judge her? Where is this “appropriateness” coming from?
In their defense, in many traditional churches women were historically not allowed behind the podium; so, I suppose we should be thankful that in 2018 a Woman was allowed to stand on the stage at all.
