However, a picture of Malone wearing a t-shirt which reads 21 Savage was released to the media shortly after that.
Joining Malone in extending support for 21 Savage was 'This is America's' producer Ludwig Göransson. During his acceptance speech for record of the year, Göransson thanked a couple of people from the industry including 21 Savage, saying that he "should be here right now."
Dua Lipa also vocalised her support for the rapper and commented on his arrest.
"It's quite upsetting given that he hasn't actually done anything and he's also given so much to American culture even being a Brit," Lipa said backstage.
21 Savage made headlines after he was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Atlanta for allegedly overstaying his visa. According to an ICE spokesperson, the rapper legally entered the U.S. in July 2005 on a visa that expired a year later. He is still in detention.
