The trend of TikTok creators impersonating Ariana Granda caught the eye of the “Thank U, Next” singer.

She responded to writer and actor Jordan Firstman’s “impressions of a meme” video in a now-deleted Instagram Story, according to the New York Post.

In a series of videos, Firstman did some “impressions” of different people and things. One of which was his “impression of a meme.”

“What if we like (take) a small clip from like a movie or TV show (of) something that this artist put their heart and soul into … recontextualize it … and gave it an arbitrary meaning,” he says in his Instagram video.

“Omg can this please also double as your impression of the pony tail tik tok girls who think doing the cat valentine voice and that wearing winged eyeliner and a sweatshirt is doing a good impersonation of me,” she wrote on her story. “cause this really how it feels … ‘degrading it’s entire value’ I screamed.”

While Grande has since deleted the post, according to the Post, it can still be seen in screenshot form floating around the Twitter-verse.
