Ariana Grande has had quite the year. In the past year, the singer not only released one number one album—but two. She’s broken multiple records for several singles released on her two albums—Sweetener and Thank U, Next—and, she even won her very first Grammy.
Although she struggled in the spotlight a lot—she lost her ex-boyfriend and close friend Mac Miller to a drug overdose and broke off an engagement to comedian Pete Davidson—Grande proved that using pain to create art can truly be remarkable.
While she—at first—was going to cancel her Sweetener tour after undergoing anxiety, depression, and several other emotional struggles due to her chaotic and non-stop year, Grande decided to continue and prevail because of her love for her fans.
And, this week, Grande kicked off her U.S. wing of her duo Sweetener and Thank U, Next tour. Aside from her non-stop talent and vocals, fans are also excited to see what kind of merch Grande will be offering.
But, according to many online, Grande’s tour merch is…less than appealing. Many people on Twitter who have been to her new tour already have been posting the photos of the merch tents online, sharing their honest opinions about how poorly made they are and look.

But, one particular piece of merch from her tour has caught the eye of many on Twitter—because there’s a big ol’ stain across the front that looks like a…dick.

All in all, the merch isn’t that bad. But, you can always just order her original merch from her website (here).
