Apparently Kanye West isn’t the only one who got all bent out of shape on Sunday night when Beck beat Beyonce for Album of the Year honors at the Grammys.

E! News reports that within minutes of his name being announced as the winner, Beck’s Wikipedia page was hacked.

The new additions included this description: “He is the stealer of The Album of the Year award.”

And this: He stole the award from “Beyonce Knowles, the Queen of the World.”

Those new “additions” have since been scrubbed from the page.

We doubt that Kanye was the hacker because after he (jokingly?) ran up on stage to grab the Grammy from Beck on behalf of Beyonce, he spent time backstage ranting about Beck’s unworthiness of the prize.
