Miller died on Friday at age 26, reportedly from a suspected drug overdose. The pair broke up this year after about two years of dating. Grande is now engaged to Pete Davidson.

People are horrible, @ArianaGrande had to remove the option of commenting on her pics on Instagram because they were blaming her for Mac Miller’s death. Ugh that’s not okay.

At the time of their breakup in May, Grande wrote Miller was one of her "best friends" and "favorite people."

"I can't wait to know and support you forever and I'm so proud of you," she wrote.

However, a few weeks later, Grande called the relationship "toxic" on Twitter. She was responding to a fan who blamed Miller getting a DUI on the breakup.

She said she had struggled to support Miller through his addiction for years, and said it was not right she's getting blamed for his issues.

"I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming / blaming women for a man's inability to keep his shit together is a very major problem," she wrote.

Still, this didn't stop Miller's fans from immediately blaming the pop star for his reported death. Soon after, Grande disabled her Instagram comments. About an hour later, they were restored. The trolls kept on coming.
