"went to pick up food with my boyfriend tonight and a young boy followed us to the car to tell Mac that he's a big fan," Ariana wrote. "I thought all of this was cute and exciting until he said 'ariana is sexy as hell man i see you, i see you hitting that!!!' *pause* Hitting that? the f*ck?"

She went on to explain that his comment made her feel "sick and objectified."

"I've felt really quiet and hurt since that moment," she wrote. "Things like [that] happen all the time and are the kinds of moments that contribute to women's sense of fear and inadequacy. I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilize for his pleasure. I'm an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect."

She finished her note with a ringing reminder to always stay strong and know your worth: "We are not objects are prizes. We are QUEENS."

One person replied to Ariana's tweet to call her "hypocritical" for getting upset when she "objectif[ies her]self " through her own music.

But Ari pointed out that there's a huge difference between singing sexually-charged lyrics and wanting to be viewed by everyone as a sex object 24/7.

When a fan asked how Mac handled the situation, the singer pointed out that it wasn't really his job to handle it, necessarily — but that he did the right thing by driving away and comforting Ari afterward.

Finally, because some situations really just call for a hug from mom, Joan Grande chimed in with pitch-perfect advice.
