The music world caught the standing ovation that Frank Ocean received when he won over Chris Brown for a Grammy. The cameras also captured Chris Brown being the only person in the whole building who remained seated as the rousing ovation filled the entire arena at the Staples Center.
As most of you know, Brown’s and Ocean’s camps got into a brawl outside a Los Angeles studio a couple of weeks ago over a parking space. Brown suffered an apparent broken right hand and a coupele of Ocean’s fingers were still bandaged up from the violent scuffle. That only added intrigue when both were nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 55th Grammy Awards — and Ocean came out on top.
Many immediately took to Twitter to express their disgust or disappointment with the R&B bad boy Brown, who was coupled up with Rihanna at a major function for the first time since their infamous domestic violence episode nearly four years ago:
I hope Chris Brown didn’t get too angry that Frank Ocean won a Grammy over him cause he might decide to take it out on Rihanna later

Take a look at what the rest of Twitter had to say about Brown’s perceived diss of Ocean, including what Ocean had to say about the matter himself.
