Christina Grimmie has won a posthumous Teen Choice Awards at the 2016 ceremony today in California, but fans are furious that she went unmentioned during the ceremony.
The singer, who was murdered in a tragic shooting earlier this year had been nominated twice before. It was allegedly a dream of the young singer’s to win a Teen Choice Award.
Her former manager Brian Teefey tweeted from Christina‘s account, asking her fans for support so Grimmie could finally win the award she’d always wanted: the Choice Music Web Star award.

But her triumphant win after her tragic death has been overshadowed by the heavy rage of her fans, due to the fact that Grimmie was used in advertisements for the awards, but her win was not televised, and she was apparently not actually mentioned during ceremony at all:
It is just upsetting that the #TeenChoiceAwards used Christina Grimmie as just a promo and did not mention her in the show! HORRIBLE!

Christina Grimmie was one of the original web creators and the #TeenChoiceAwards completely ignored her death. I’m so done. ?????

A bit tacky that the #TeenChoiceAwards didn’t honor Christina Grimmie, but that’s just me

For those asking- no, the #TeenChoiceAwards did not pay tribute or mention Christina Grimmie at all throughout the show. ??

That was honestly so awful. I’m never watching the #TeenChoiceAwards again. You should be ashamed for what you did to Christina Grimmie fans

The #TeenChoiceAwards wants to talk about ending gun violence but didn’t talk about Christina Grimmie? I see you.

Grimmie was 22 years old when she was shot and killed by a fan during an autograph signing following a performance at The Plaza in June this year.
There’s been no statement from the Teen Choice Awards at this current time.
