Fans are never gonna let Sam Smith off the hook after saying he "doesn't like" the King of Pop Michael Jackson.

In a now-deleted Instagram video uploaded by fellow singer Adam Lambert, the "Lay Me Down" hitmaker can be heard saying "I don't like Michael Jackson, but this is good song".

And now the internet wants him to change his ways.
Sam Smith is over. What self respecting musician says they don’t like Michael Jackson? Honey..— Con Li (@Guido_Conz) August 10, 2018
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— F (@ItsokF) August 10, 2018

Sam Smith : I don't like Michael Jackson
Me: MICHAEL JACKSON HAD MORE TALENT IN THE GLUE THAT KEPT HIS NOSE ON THEN YOU'LL EVER HAVE SO YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH!
However, some also came to Sam's defense and think he's entitled to his own opinion.
My opinion on Michael Jackson:— IRequestAri (@request_ariana) August 12, 2018
He was a very good entertainer. But his singing skills weren't that great.
Michael's fans aren't going to come after me too, are they?
Sam Smith has a right to his opinion. Let it be!
