Following the success of her debut solo album Petals For Armor, Williams earned a nomination at this year’s MTV EMAs. She is nominated in the Best Alternative category alongside twenty one pilots, FKA Twigs, Machine Gun Kelly, the 1975 and blackbear.

She shared the nomination news on Twitter this week and asked fans to vote for her. However, she also wouldn’t be mad if they chose to vote for FKA Twigs instead.

“please vote for me for best alternative something at the @mtvema’s, so my manager will stop roasting me and my label can sleep tonight. also if you wont vote for me then vote for @FKAtwigs cause she’s so cool and makes beautiful art.”

This is the first EMA nomination for Williams as a solo artist. Paramore previously won the Best Alternative award back in 2010. As well, the band have been nominated in the same category in 2009, 2013 and 2014.

Williams’ label Warner Music decided to congratulate the artist on her historic nomination. However, the now-deleted Facebook post quickly caught the attention of many for all of the wrong reasons. The graphic clearly spells Hayley’s name wrong, stating that “Harley Williams” has earned the Best Alternative nomination.

Naturally, the news spread like wildfire and Williams eventually heard about what happened.

“Warner music, my dude, you’re on thin ice lol ? ”

Fans, of course, are turning the mistake into a slew of memes and tweets. Williams says that fans shouldn’t let the blunder go. After all, as an artist that has been with Warner Music for years, they could at least get her name right.

“plz dont let it go. been a @warnermusic artist for over half my life the least they can do is get my name right.”

One fan was so inspired by the mistake that they changed their Twitter handle.
