The horrific terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester Arena on Monday night left the singer ‘broken’.
As Ariana flew home to the US to grieve with her family and her boyfriend Mac Miller, her fans – known as Arianators – came together on social media to support the star and pay tribute to their fallen peers.
A video quickly went viral online showing her close bond with her followers.

She says in the video: “I appreciate them so much. I love them from the bottom of my heart, no matter what.”
Her signature bunny ears also trended in posts on Twitter, and was shared by fellow stars Drake and Shawn Mendes.
Some of the victims have been named as teenager Olivia Campbell, Alison Howe, 45, and her friend Lisa Lees, Kelly Brewster, Saffie Rose Roussos, eight, John Atkinson, 26, Georgina Callendar, 18, Megan Hurley, and Marcin and Anjelika Klis.
That list is set to grow, and after Ariana tweeted that she is “so so sorry,” her fans started trending the hashtag #ThisIsNotYourFaultAriana.

Elsewhere, Justin Bieber’s fans have begged him to cancel his UK dates as fear grips pop’s youth.
The singer is due to perform on July 2 at Barclaycard presents BST in London’s Hyde Park but fans have called on his manager, Scooter Braun, to take him off the bill.
A fan, with the handle marhrukhh, wrote on his manager Scooter Braun’s Instagram: “Cancel Justin’s concert in the UK, please! We want him to be safe, please“.
Braun also manages Ariana and the stars, who are both 23.
