Chris Brown opted to not take the high road during Sunday’s Grammy Awards when he lost to Frank Ocean for Best Urban Contemporary Album. The controversial rapper was spotted remaining seated when Ocean’s name was announced as the winner.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, during the announcement of the nominees, the crowd stayed noticeably quiet when Brown was announced as a potential winner. When Ocean was dubbed the winner and handed the Grammy, the audience jumped to their feet to honor him. Every person in the room was on their feet, except Brown.
Additional reports suggest that CBS added in the sound of applause for viewers, but the room actually remained silent. The network did not comment on the alleged report.
Police have since closed the case.
Brown is still on probation for his 2009 battery of on again girlfriend Rihanna.
Ocean has not responded to the obvious snub.
