The jazz artist's page was altered to make her middle name "Justin," while another edit read that she won even though "no one has heard of her."

Esperanza Spalding scored a Grammy upset over Justin Bieber on Sunday night, winning best new artist honors.

But not everyone was happy about it.

Following her win, the jazz artist's Wikipedia page was altered with the addition of some presumably false statements as well as negative comments, as pointed out by Gawker.

Among the edits:

-- "She now has the 2011 Grammy for being the Best new Artist! Even though no one has ever heard of her! Yay!"

-- "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?"

Other edits changed her name to either "Justin" or "Quesadilla" or went so far as to write that "SHE IS A F---ING RETARD."

Still, not all of the edits were negative toward Spalding. One read that she beat out "nominee and gay favorite Justina Bieber" for the Grammy.

Read another: "HaHa Justin Bieber, you're just a little boy with no Grammy for Best New Artist."
