Sam tells it like it is in this honest Instagram post.

Despite all the wonderful strides toward equality for LGBTQ people, many still experience homophobia and prejudice first-hand on a daily basis.

Sam Smith, an actual millionaire and Grammy award winning singer posted one such example of the type of hate speech floating around on the internet.

This genuinely doesn't offend me, coz I'm way too tick 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!!

Well done for putting this Instagram account on blast. His fans have come to his defence on Instagram.

But it's pretty clear that Sam isn't getting too upset over the post. You could even say he is saying "la la la" to the haters.
