Twitter Is Upset The 2019 Grammys Left Out XXXTentacion During Memoriam Segment

Like every year, the Grammys took a moment to pay tribute to the artists we’ve recently lost in the music industry. During last night’s award show, the Recording Academy recognized Mac Miller, who passed away last September at the age of 26, and Avicii, the Swedish DJ and producer who passed back in April. The tribute also included legendary singer Nancy Wilson, Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Ed King and Carol Channing.

However, among the celebrities in the “In Memoriam” tribute, fans noticed that The Recording Academy left out rapper XxxTentacion! Fans quickly took to the social media to share their disappointment.

One twitter user said,

“Everyone’s talking about [Drake’s] mic getting cut off during his speech but nobody saying ANYTHING about @xxxtentacion NOT being in the Annual Memoriam Tribute.” Another pointed out that the Grammys also forgot to remember Lil Peep, who passed away November 15, 2017. “The fact @therecordingacad didn’t acknowledge @xxxtentacion or @lilpeep in the memorial shows the upmost disrespect.”

It’s not clear why the Grammys left out the 20-year-old rapper nor did have they addressed the backlash, but hopefully they will soon.
