Cory Monteith Grammys Tribute Strikes the Wrong Cord
Late Glee actor Cory Monteith was among the departed stars honored in the “In Memoriam” tribute at Sunday night’s 56th Annual Grammy Awards. The appropriateness of a similar gesture sparked controversy at the Primetime Emmys last fall; this time Gleeks are outraged by the incorrect spelling of Cory’s last name.
During the segment, the name accompanying a photo of Monteith identified the actor as “Cory Montieth,” swapping the “i” and the “e.” Newsman Mike Morrison tweeted a screenshot of the error, quipping:
“Someone’s getting fired.”
Representatives for the Grammys have not responded to the gaffe.
