Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Cory Monteith’s fans have sparked a Twitter outrage over the late Glee star’s misspelled name at the 56th Grammy awards’ segment In Memoriam on Sunday evening.
Instead of Monteith, the late actor’s last name was spelled “Montieth,” causing netizens to publicly express their criticism over the error, saying it was disrespectful to the memory of the late actor.
Twitter user Mike Morrison wrote, “Cory Monteith’s name was spelled incorrectly. Someone’s getting fired.” User Kelli Smith Jackson also moved for firing the one responsible for the mistake, writing, “Dear Recording Academy, it’s 2014 & no one has spell check? His name is Cory MONTEITH!!! Fire the fact check clerk!! #GRAMMYs”
Another user, Mark Harris, wrote, “Misspelling Cory Monteith’s name? Good going, Grammys.”
In Memoriam serves as a tribute to notable artists and industry professionals in the music industry who passed away over the past year, aims to “salute each individual for their respective talents and contributions to our culture and community.”
Meanwhile, the 504-person In Memoriam list found on the Grammys website includes Lou Reed, Van Cliburn, Phil Everly, Ray Manzarek, Phil Ramone, and Robert Zildjian.
