Ariana Grande is said to have gone and donated a whopping $300,000 (£235,600) to Planned Parenthood in Atlanta after the abortion law was passed.

Yes, according to TMZ, the Thank U, Next hitmaker sent proceeds to the charity from her sold out concert in the city.

The stars move is a controversial one, following the news that the heartbeat bill has been passed.

The new regulation, which has caused a boycott of the state, bans abortions once you can detect a fetal heartbeat.

Hollywood giants have since stood together in uproar after the backlash, threatening to remove millions of dollars of income for the state as they take their business elsewhere.

This has includes Netflix, who recently filmed Stranger Things there, and Walt Disney Co. who said it would be difficult to remain in the area.

This isnt the first time Ariana has stood up for what she believes in, as the star recently hit back at an anti-LGBTQ protester who disrupted fans entering the arena during one of her shows.

The campaigner was filmed outside the Breathin songstresss concert in Atlanta, holding a banner with the word Pride crossed out.

After watching the video, the 25-year-old popstar took to Twitter where she revealed she was saddened but not surprised by this one bit.
