The 2022 Grammy Awards' nod to the late Virgil Abloh during their In Memoriam segment Sunday has many speaking out against the show's reference to Abloh as a "hip hop fashion designer."

"The way that everyone is collectively so angry about 'Virgil Abloh, hip hop fashion designer' like HOW did that even get approved by multiple people????" one person tweeted Monday of the late Off-White and Louis Vuitton designer, who died in November 2021 at age 41 after a private two-year battle with cancer.

"I'm not even a big virgil abloh guy but calling him a 'hip-hop fashion designer' is wild disrespectful," another Twitter user said.

Some of us thought he had no obstacles … V forever an icon ✨????????????✨™️"
