Today, Sam Smith posted a screengrab of the homophobic 'gaysamsmith' Instagram account.
The account, made by an unknown Instagram user, featured the following poem as its bio:
In response, Sam wrote the following:
This genuinely doesn't offend me, coz I'm way too thick skinned when it comes to this kind of shit. BUT I just wanted to share this with everyone, so you can see how homophobia is still SO PRESENT in our society!!
What a great response. Parody accounts are supposed to be funny. This account is the equivalent of an 11-year-old boy seeing someone on the bus listening to Sam Smith, screaming "ha ha Sam Smith is gaaaay!!!," and giving them a purple nurple. Let's be reall, though: it was probably made by a grown man, sadly enough.
