Ariana Grande appeared to react with anger and disappointment when Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy” won best rap album at the Grammys on Sunday.

Directly after the announcement and during the rapper’s acceptance speech, Grande sent out five tweets in quick succession: “what,” “f—,” “trash,” “bulls—,” and “literal bulls—.” She deleted all five immediately after, but INSIDER was able to confirm their existences.

Grande’s late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, was posthumously nominated in the same category for his final album “Swimming.”

Grande has repeatedly paid homage to Miller since he died of an accidental overdose in September; she has posted photos and videos of him on Instagram and numerous songs on her new album, released on Friday, appear to be written about him. Grande and Miller dated for two years before they announced their split in May.

“Y’all invited Mac’s parents out and you didn’t give him an award are y’all DUMB?” one tweet reads, with the Recording Academy’s official Twitter page tagged.

Many fans noticed Grande’s reaction before she deleted the tweets and most assumed that her harsh words were directed towards Miller’s loss, rather than Cardi’s win.^tfw^tfw

For her part, Cardi B announced backstage that she would be “sharing” her trophy with Miller.

“And you wanna know something?” Cardi said, after thanking her family and team members. “I read an article that Mac Miller’s family said that if he don’t win, they want me to win. So I’m sharing this Grammy with you, motherf—–! Rest in peace!”

After the show had ended, Cardi posted a screenshot of the article in question with the caption, “WE WON A F—– GRAMMY ????????????????????.” Grande commented on the post with six black heart emojis.
