Fans of Malcolm James McCormick, popularly known by his stage name Mac Miller, blamed his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, for the American rapper’s untimely demise.

The news of Miller’s death shook the world yesterday, Sept. 8. His family confirmed that the rapper died on Friday, Sept. 7, in his home in Los Angeles. Although the coroner’s office handling the case did not give details on the cause of Miller’s death, there had been rumors circulating in social media that the rapper, who was then-battling drug addiction, died of a drug overdose.

This rumor did not sit well with Miller’s fans who expressed their anger over the rapper’s alleged cause of death towards Grande. The singer and Miller had been in a two-year relationship before calling it quits in early May this year. Grande announced her relationship with comedian Pete Davidson by the end of May, and at the beginning of June, Davidson and Grande were engaged.

Miller’s fans are blaming Grande for Miller’s death.

Some are rationalizing their blame, citing Miller and Grande’s breakup as well as Grande’s relationship with Davidson as reasons.

Another Twitter user, Pres (@pres2424), said s/he will be boycotting Grande’s music after what happened.

Apparently, it was not only on Twitter that Grande had been slammed by Miller’s fans. Grande briefly disabled the commenting feature on her Instagram page after Miller’s fans blamed her for the rapper’s death on the comments section of her photos. Fans may now comment on her posts again, as of this writing.

But Grande’s fans were quick to support the singer, stating that Grande is not to blame for Miller’s alleged drug overdose. They asserted that Grande has the right to leave Miller when their relationship became “toxic.”

“The only way it was Ariana Grande’s fault is if she was his drug dealer,” quipped one Twitter user, Adrian Respects Women (@adrianrespects).

“You know, I didn’t see anybody blaming William Valderrama when Demi Lovato overdosed, but when Mac Miller overdosed, everybody is attacking Ariana Grande?” asked one fan, Allie Baba (@NsbSo), referring to Lovato’s drug overdose in July. “What kind of backwards sexist bullshit is this?”

Today, Sept. 9, Grande finally broke her silence on the matter.

She shared a black-and-white photo of Miller on Instagram without a caption. JB
