Christina Grimmie fans have been left outraged after their beloved star was noticeably missing from a segment that paid tribute to gun violence.

Though nominated for Choice Music Web Star, Christina was noticeably missing from a tribute let by Jessica Alba on gun violence, which featured family members from the Newtown and Dallas shootings, as well as Alton Sterling’s son.

Christina, who was shot fatally by a fan after a show in Orlando in June, was omitted from the tribute, and fans were quick to call it on Twitter.

There was also uproar against the show for its use of Christina’s name and Twitter handle to promote the award show weeks before the broadcast.

The Teen Choice Awards Twitter account posted messages including this one, which asked fans to “retweet in honor of her memory” for the Choice Music Web Star award.

Fans have accused the awards show of using Christina’s name to attract views, before leaving her out of the tribute.
