Cory Monteith’s name was spelled incorrectly during In Memoriam Tribute during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, which angered his fans.
Many Glee fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment that the late actor’s name was spelled “Montieth,” saying it was disrespectful to his legacy.
One angry Twitter user wrote, “You had ONE job, #Grammys "In Memoriam" guy! #corymonteith,” while another wrote “TV 101. And they blew it.”
