You can include him if it's just a picture of someone pissing on his grave. Fuck him.
I agree with ya'll. He doesn't deserve a special memorial or tribute.
The same award ceremony that honored Greta Van Fleet forgot actual rock legends-- shocker.
i'm sure XXX had no problems fucking underage fans.
Joe shouldn't have been included either, and the abuse he did to his own family, let alone people outside it, should be talked about a lot more than it is today considering the modern climate
"He doesn't deserve to be honored at the Grammy Awards" =/= "I'm happy he was killed".
He's getting the pass because of time, same reason why Bowie, Berry, Lewis, Jagger, Tyler. The lists are pretty long. R.Kelly would have been fine if he stopped it like most others, but the social media age finally gave victims the place to release it to the public. It feels like there is a mulligan with stuff prior to 2010.
There is a difference between thinking not honoring him at the grammys is the right call and being happy he got murdered.
He doesn't deserve to be honored at the grammy's since he is an abuser. What kind of message would that send? Sure you committed crimes and beat people but your music is good enough to ignore those things. Yeah, no.
Yeah, in his defense though. The months before X was killed, he was REALLY turning a new leaf and actively trying to become a better person.Honestly, the lionization of X has been the worst part of X's death.
All his Members Only folks and even Denzel Curry are actively making X seem like this great misunderstood soul. I went to a Denzel show a couple months ago, and the Members Only folks opened up for him. The last 10 minutes of the opener were dedicated to this video meant to show off how X gave toys to the youth and was a great live performer and was a real great person. All the while, the crowd was just yelling out "Long live Jah" and throwing Xs into the air. It was something else.
I'm a cynic, so I believe that X's new leaf was inspired by being signed to a label who couldn't afford to have bad press. Ultimately, we'll never know what was in X's heart when he started doing his philanthropy.
This is the most lame ass defense ever. And you say this like, because you wouldn't rub it in a grieving family's face that their loved one was a piece of trash that means you can't stand by a decision to not honor him at an award show. Lol, sorry but no.
No one is happy the dude got shot. People just aren't going to pretend like they're sad about it. Why should we give a shit about this dude and his "legacy" in the face of being a terrible human being which he proudly wore?
You'll only get ban if you say some stupid shit so . . .
Neither have I, what is your point?
