Christina Grimmie FORGOTTEN at Teen Choice Awards–Was She Left Out Intentionally?

Earlier this year, 22-year-old singer Christina Grimmie was shot and killed while signing autographs. Now, fans of the young star are angry with the Teen Choice Awards for what seems like an intentional snub of the former The Voice contestant.

Christina Grimmie first became well-known for the cover songs she posted on YouTube.

The awards show doesn’t always announce every single award, but given the circumstances, it seemed an odd choice for them to fail to mention Christina Grimmie’s posthumous victory in the Choice Web Star: Music category.

Additionally, the awards show played a moving tribute to the victims of gun violence, and Grimmie also wasn’t included in that. The oversight was even more surprising given that the Teen Choice Awards used Grimmie in a promo for the program.

Jessica Alba led the tribute for the victims of gun violence, including Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

“While we are glad that Christina finally won her much-deserved Teen Choice Award, we are also definitely disappointed that her name was not mentioned at any point during the two-hour broadcast,” a source close to the Grimmie family said.

The source further added, “It seems they could have paid honor or tribute to her in some way and that opportunity was missed. The fans have a right to be upset.”
