The Recording Academy apologized after comedian Tiffany Haddish slammed the organization for asking her to host a Grammys event without compensation.

The academy’s interim chief executive officer, Harvey Mason Jr., said in an Instagram video that it was wrong for a talent booker to tell Haddish that the organization wouldn’t even cover her costs for working the event. He said it was done without his knowledge.
