Kendrick Lamar Fans Call Out Grammys for Album of the Year Snub

Though Kendrick Lamar nabbed four Grammys at this year's festivities, including ones for best rap song and best rap album, when it came down to the night's biggest honor, he fell short to Bruno Mars.

Mars winning album of the year for 24K Magic -- his sixth trophy after also winning song of the year ("That's What I Like") and record of the year ("24K Magic") -- caused a heated discussion on Twitter, as avid Lamar fans were enraged by the decision. "Kendrick put out three of the greatest albums of our lifetime, and three times now he has lost the Grammy for Best Album. First to Daft Punk, then to Taylor Swift, and now to Bruno Mars," said one vexed Twitter user. 

"Jay-Z was robbed. Kendrick was robbed. And Childish was robbed. No way 24K Magic was better than all of those albums. #GRAMMYs," said another.
