New England Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner did not mince words when he slammed Kanye West for the stunt he pulled over Beck's Album of the Year win at Sunday's Grammy Awards.

West jumped on stage when Beck's "Morning Phase" beat out Beyonce's "Beyonce" for the night's biggest award. Many initially thought he was poking fun at his infamous interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 Vide Music Awards, when the country star took home the award for Best Female Music Video over Queen Bey, but the rapper later clarified that he was not kidding around, saying: "Beck needs to respect artistry and he should've given his award to Beyonce."

The 30-year-old cornerback and Super Bowl winner did give credit where credit it due, however.

He also said that West should know better and referred to Yeezy as "Sponge Bob."

Many others have spoken out against West for targeting Beck. Garbage singer Shirley Manson posted an open letter to West on Facebook telling him to grow up.

"You make yourself look small and petty and spoilt," she wrote. "In attempting to reduce the importance of one great talent over another, you make a mockery of all musicians and music from every genre, including your own. Grow up and stop throwing your toys around. You are making yourself look like a complete twat."

Beck has 12 studio albums and is credited with 14 instruments on "Morning Phase," Buzzfeed notes. He also has numerous awards to his name, including six Grammys.
