Sam Smith’s action at the 2023 Grammy Awards still upset a number of people. Recently, Sam Smith was even shouted at as “Demonic” by their mother while walking around New York City.
In a video that went viral on social media, Thursday (16/2), Sam Smith appears to be at the Central Park Zoo in New York City. He looked casual and held a paper cup.
But then a female voice shouted at him. Sam Smith was seen holding a cell phone and recording the action of the woman cursing him from a distance.
“Sam Smith should be in hell!” shouted the woman who is known to have an Irish accent. “You devil, crazy, crazy bast*rd!”
“You’re sick, Sam Smith! You devil!” shouted the woman who then saw her face and looked to be middle age. The mothers even shouted at Sam Smith as a “pedophile”.
However, the excited screams of the women did not seem to bother Sam Smith. He casually walked past the woman.
The middle-aged woman’s action came after the controversial actions of Sam Smith and Kim Petras on the 2023 Grammy Awards stage when they performed Unholy.
At that time, Sam Smith put on a demon and hell-themed show, complete with dancers dressed as ghosts, and the devil’s horn hat worn by Sam Smith.
The appearance not only disturbed conservative and religious groups, but also the United States broadcasting agency, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC).
The New York Post reported that the FCC assessed Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ appearance as a “glorification” of Satan.
Likewise with a number of conservative politicians such as the Republican Party. They rated Sam Smith’s performance as “devilish” and “devilish”.
The song Unholy by Sam Smith and Kim Petras which went viral on social media previously won the 2023 Grammy Awards in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.
In his victory speech, Kim Petras thanked him for the opportunity to win his first Grammy trophy.
“Oh my God, thank you very much. This is really crazy! Sam! I really love you,” said Kim Petras, who wore a red scarf and dress, compact with Sam Smith.
