Philly purveyors of donuts and other fine prepared foods: If you fear that donut-lickers might descend on your establishment, we understand. And we have a solution for you.

Pop star and now outed donut-licker Ariana Grande was caught licking donuts on Tuesday in a California establishment. Then, Grande was caught on video expressing disdain toward our dear country, saying, “What the fuck is that? I hate Americans. I hate America,” in response to being offered a fresh tray of donuts. She has since apologized for her remarks on America – “I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country,” she tweeted.

She also later apologized in a YouTube video for licking said donuts:

It’s worth noting Grande will be here on the 29th performing at the Wells Fargo Center. To stop a similar incident from happening in our city, and deter the wave of vagrants that might follow in her footsteps, we’ve created this poster for you to use. Feel free to share, print and hang in the window of your fine establishment. Use this full size PDF of the poster.

And remember: Donut-licking is (probably) a crime.
