Sam Smith Responds to Dustin Lance Black, Sends His Apologies

Sam Smith has responded to Dustin Lance Black‘s tweet after claiming in his 2016 Oscars acceptance speech he may have been the first openly gay man to win an Academy Award.

“Second openly gay man to win an oscar or third or fourth or 100th, It wasn’t my point,” the 23-year-old entertainer tweeted. “Apologies for the mix up @DLanceBlack I’ll be sure to check out your films now x Belated Congrats on the Oscar x”

Sam did not end up responding to the second part of Dustin‘s tweet, which told Sam to stop texting his fiance Tom Daley.

    Keeping it classy. Unlike the 42 year old who was real catty, possessive over their partner, and took something that should have been private to social media.

    Great response from Sam Smith. Took the high road, and maintained his composure and class.

  • Skott

    One of these guys has class. The other one is DLB.

  • Michele V

    It’s true that it wasn’t his point and he explicitly stated that in the speech.

  • JM

    Um, is everyone here missing the point? Sam is not the first, nor second, or even the third openly gay person to win an Oscar! If he is going to act like a warrior for the LGBT can he at least know the history and progress we’ve already made? That’s like someone landing on the moon today and saying “Wow, I’m the 1st person on the moon!” Don’t make up excuses for this self centered asshole.
