    Things You Can Do This Weekend: Oct. 19 and Oct. 20
    Michael Rapaport and Ariana Grande will not be exchanging greeting cards this year.

    Michael Rapaport has yet to apologize for insulting Ariana Grande's appearance.

    In fact, the comedian is doubling down on the comments he made about the pop star and his apparent commitment to "always stay disruptive." On Thursday, Rapaport took to social media with an image of his own face photoshopped on Pete Davidson's body and standing next to Ariana on the red carpet at the 2018 VMAs.

    "When Thank You, Next is really life!!!" he captioned the image, referencing Ariana's hit song of the same name. "Always Stay Disruptive! Shout out to all the Women at Starbucks!!!"

    Rapaport's initial remarks drew widespread criticism from fellow social media users, as he wrote online at the time, "Ariana Grande is 27 acts 12, you take off those boots she hides her legs in, the cat eye make up and the genie pony tale and I think there's hotter women working the counter at Starbucks no disrespect to Starbucks."

    Rapaport first discussed Grande during a recent episode of his self-titled podcast, where he also apologized for making light of Davidson and Kanye West's recent comments regarding their mental health.

    "I would never mock somebody when they are in that type of trouble and I took down my tweets," he said. Last Saturday, Davidson raised concern amongst fans and peers when he wrote on Instagram, "I really don't want to be on this earth anymore." Hours later, the 24-year-old made a brief appearance on SNL but has since stayed out of the public eye.

    Rapaport then commented on Grande's intimate life, saying during the episode, "You know who you got to watch out for? Ariana Grande. Because Kim Kardashian and the Kardashians--they're career killers."
