Did Sam deserve all the backlash?

Twitter has been giving Sam Smith a hard time after the 'In The Lonely Hour' singer spoke out about his disgust, after friends of his were racially abused on a night out in London. 

The award-winning singer tweeted that he "never ever ever ever thought that would happen here [in London]", adding "I feel like I have to shine some sort of light on it."


Twitter has since been criticising Smith, accusing him of being naive for only just realising that "racism can happen in London."

However, others have jumped to his defence, arguing that his "wording was clumsy, but his intention was good."
