Twitter was not having Madonna’s so-called tribute to Aretha Franklin at the MTV Video Music Awards Monday.

Before presenting the award for video of the year, the singer shared a story about how Franklin “changed the course” of her life — and social media users dragged her for how much it focused on herself as opposed to the late Queen of Soul.

Here are the best reactions:

“Of course Madonna manages to make this Aretha Franklin tribute about her,” one Twitter user said. 

“Is this about Aretha or Madonna,” another wrote.

“This does not sound like a tribute to me,” another said.

“does Madonna know Madonna didn’t die,” another tweeted.

“I see Madonna is still upset Aretha overshadowed her birthday by dying on it, so she’s going to talk about herself as the Aretha tribute,” one user said.

“I WOULD HAVE ALMOST RATHER HAD MADONNA BUTCHER AN ARETHA SONG INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT HERSELF FOR ALMOST TEN MINUTES LMFAO,” one wrote.

“Girl, can you please talk about Aretha and not yourself. Lord,” singer K. Michelle tweeted.

Others thought about Franklin.

“I would pay to see Aretha’s face right now,” one user wrote.

“this is so offensive to aretha,’ another wrote.
