Naya RiveraFans speak out after the late star appeared to have been verbally abused by the Grammys.
The 2021 Grammy Awards, which premiered on Sunday March 14, honored singers and musicians who passed away last year. However, the glee alum was not included in the on-air tribute. After noticing their absence from the segment, fans used social media to share their outrage.
“Naya Rivera was a singer, not just an actress,” wrote a Twitter user. “She was a two-time Grammy nominee. She had a career that lasted more than two decades. She died to save her son’s life. The fact that @RecordingAcad didn’t think it appropriate to put her on the In Memoriam.” – To include the section is a shame. “
Another wrote, “Since the #GRAMMYs didn’t mention them, I’ll do it. Rest in peace, naya rivera you beautiful angel, we love you and miss you so much.”
The tribute – beautifully performed by Lionel Richie, Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, Brittany Howard and more – honored Pop smoke, Little Richard, Kenny Rogers, John Prine, Gerry & The Pacemakers and many others.
