AceShowbiz - Although Adele mentioned Beyonce Knowles during her Album of the Year acceptance speech, Beyonce's fans didn't seem too happy to see the British singer's win. Beyhive later took to Twitter to bash Adele and the Recording Academy since they didn't think the soul diva deserved to win. One of the protesters was none other than Queen Bey's younger sister, Solange Knowles.
Solange took to Twitter to share her thought. She wrote a cryptic message, "wuddup Frank," along with a link to Frank Ocean's Tumblr post in which the "Novacane" singer criticized Grammy's executives Ken Ehrlich and David Wild for showing "cultural bias and general nerve damage" through the show.

Solange's cryptic message drove Twitter frenzy as many other users took her side. A user wrote, "I love Adele and I love 25 but Beyonce and 'Lemonade' shaped pop culture more than any other artist and album in 2016," while another one wrote, "Adele is a great artist, but come on. Beyonce made a timeless masterpiece."
