Adele Beat Out Beyoncé at the Grammys, and the Internet Collectively Lost Its Chill
Adele really cleaned up at Sunday's Grammys, snagging a total of five trophies and beating out Beyoncé in four categories, including record and album of the year. While Adele graciously dedicated her trophies to Queen Bey, people still weren't happy with the results; shortly after Adele's wins, fans took to Twitter to share their upset reactions. Read some of their emotional tweets below.
Tell me what else it is if it isnt RACE.
If ADELE or TAYLOR SWIFT released "Lemonade" & garnered the acclaim she got, I GUARANTEE theyd win

Fuck the #GRAMMYs for being too racist to acknowledge black excellence tbh. Adele is ridiculously talented. "Lemonade" changed the game.
