Solange Knowles tweeted several messages of support for her sister after Beyoncé was snubbed at the Grammys, but she then deleted all the evidence.

Beyoncé lost out on Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and Record of the Year to Adele, and Solange wasn’t about to be quiet about it.

“Waddup Frank,” the 30-year-old Grammy-winning singer wrote on Sunday alongside a link to a Tumblr post by Frank Ocean that accused the Grammys of “cultural bias.”

“Create your own committees, build your own institutions,” she added on Monday, “give your friends awards, award yourself, and be the gold you wanna gold my g’s.”

“There have only been two black winners in the last 20 years for album of the year there have been over 200 black artist who have performed,” she continued, before deleting all her tweets on the subject.

Adele herself was just as outspoken about the snub, and even less subtle.

“I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled, and I’m very grateful and gracious but, my artist of my life is Beyoncé,” Adele said while accepting the award for Album of the Year. “And this album for me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, is so monumental, and so well thought out, and so beautiful.”
