Ariana Grande's Doughnut-Licking Stunt Knocks Shop's Health Rating Down

Wednesday night, the doughnut shop confirmed they were docked one letter grade by the health department.

It's quickly becoming the doughnut-lick seen 'round the country.

Not long after video surfaced of Ariana Grande licking unpurchased doughnuts at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, Calif., the doughnut shop is facing the consequences.

Wednesday night (July 8), the doughnut shop confirmed to the local NBC affiliate that they were docked one letter grade by the health department, meaning they now have a "B" grade. (A call to the doughnut shop by Billboard on Thursday morning went unanswered.)

Grande apologized for the incident, saying she was sorry "for not using more discretion in my choice of words," referencing her "I hate America" remarks. Her apology didn't make any mention of the doughnut-licking.
