Chris Brown’s failure to give Frank Ocean a standing ovation didn’t go unnoticed at the Grammys last night, with Brits Adele and Ed Sheeran giving the singer glaring looks as he remains in his seat.
The ‘Don’t Judge Me’ singer was defeated by Frank at the awards on Sunday in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category for his debut LP, Channel Orange, leaving Chris’ record Fortune out in the cold. Clearly unable to maintain his gracious loser act, Chris remained seated as the rest of the audience gave Frank a standing ovation, but he did continue to clap.

However, Chris’ meagar effort caught the attention of fellow Brits Adele and Sheeran, who were seated nearby and gave the singer scolding, side-eye looks as they continued to applaud Frank, in a photo which has gone viral online and sent Twitter into overdrive.
Another photo in particular shows Adele apparently “shouting” at Chris, as has been suggested online, with the Grammy-winner possibly giving Chris a telling off for his sore loser attitude.
The ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ songstress couldn’t have been too mad at him though because they were later seen posing with each other, while Adele also cuddled up to Frank, clearly showing her affiliation to both.
Frank and Chris have had an ongoing feud over the last couple of years, coming to a climax last month when the pair got into a brawl in the car park of a recording studio. Frank was still sporting a bandaged hand after allegedly cutting his finger in the brawl.
Was Chris Brown wrong not to stand for Frank?
