Carlos Santana is in a lot of trouble with Beyoncé fans after making some questionable comments about her singing ability.

Many Beyoncé fans are upset that she was not able to win Album of the Year for Lemonade at the Grammys, with the award being given to Adele's 25 instead. The controversial decision hasn't sat well with the Beyhive, the singer's loyal fanbase.

But some believe that Adele's win was perfectly justified. Santana spoke with the Australian Associated Press following Adele's victory and explained why he thinks she won.

"I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing," he said. "With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very beautiful to look at and it's more like modeling kind of music - music to model a dress - she's not a singer, singer, with all respect to her."

Considering Beyoncé has strong vocal range combined with charismatic stage presence, many Beyoncé fans took issue with his comments - especially considering she made something as artistic and alternative as Lemonade. Santana has since responded to the controversy, writing in a Facebook post that his words were taken out of context.

"I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia & New Zealand," Santana wrote. "My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammys. My comment about Beyonce was regretfully taken out of context. I have the utmost respect for her as an artist and a person. She deserves all the accolades that come her way. I wish Beyonce and her family all the best."

Santana didn't exactly clarify his comments about Beyoncé in the post, so while many commented that he didn't have anything to apologize for, others thought it wasn't enough.

Beyoncé did walk away with two Grammys on Sunday (for Urban Contemporary Album and Music Video) but she lost seven other races - mostly to Adele.
