Sam Smith is catching a lot of flak for saying he is not a fan of Michael Jackson’s music.
The British singer was captured saying this during his boating trip with friends, including Adam Lambert who mistakenly shared the video on his Instagram Story.
From the clip, Adam Lambert is seen recording some of the day’s festivities and posting them to his Instagram account. Smith could also be seen jamming out to some Beyoncé, and in another clip, he is captured talking about the musical legend Michael Jackson.
Lambert pans over just as Smith says, “I don’t like Michael Jackson, but this is a good song.”
See the video below.

While he didn’t necessarily diss the late legend, his candidness was all folks needed to drag the singer all over social media. See some of the reactions below.
Yes Sam Smith can have his opinion, of course. But you can’t just say “I don’t like Michael Jackson”, you have to say “I’m very sorry but Michael Jackson’s songs aren’t my fave.” That’s it. Pay some respect to the ultimate LEGEND and forever #1 of billions. pic.twitter.com/jLsyBx8uva

I have defended Sam Smith through thick and thin but hating on Michael Jackson is UNFORGIVABLE.
Cancel him (again). pic.twitter.com/JbAo9wl8PO
