Post Malone Won Favorite Rap Album at 2019 American Music Awards and People Are Pissed
Post Malone left the 2019 American Music Awards with a trophy for Favorite Album - Rap/Hip-Hop and a lot of people aren't happy about it.
On Sunday night (Nov. 24), Posty was nominated in the category for his Hollywood's Bleeding album along with other notable acts like Meek Mill for his Championships album and Travis Scott for his Astroworld album. Once the "Congratulations" rapper was dubbed the winner, all sorts of critics hit up their Twitter timelines to express their discontent with the AMAs' decision.
"Post Malone. Best Rap Album. Get the entire fuck outta here," one Twitter user said.
Most people were in shock that Post, who recently closed out his national tour, won over Meek and Travis. Others believe that he shouldn't have won over the aforementioned nominated artists.
"I fuck with Post Malone. But he shouldn’t have won best rap album.... not rap...," another Twitter user said.
Before the hate manifested online, Posty's acceptance speech got plenty of attention after he slipped in his love for grapes.
"I'm not too good at talking in front of people but I just wanna say thank you so much to everybody who showed love and support," Post said during his acceptance speech. "And honestly, words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am for everything that y'all have shown me. I just wanna say thank you to everybody on the camp and on the team and thank you for all the fans for showing love and support. We busted our ass for it so, you know, it feels good to walk away and, uh, we love you very much and I love grapes. So, thank you so much."
