Now, this is awkward.

Social media was furious after watching Aretha Franklin’s funeral and seeing Bishop Charles H. Ellis III inappropriately touch Ariana Grande. In the disgusting video, you see him wrap his arm around her with his creeping hand caressing her side boob. Eww gross!

He apologized during an interview with the Associated Press,

“It would never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast. … I don’t know I guess I put my arm around her,” Ellis said. “Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar but again, I apologize.”

Take a look at the footage below:
