Shawn Mendes has publicly apologized to Sam Smith and it all centers around an introduction at the Jingle Ball 2020.
Full story below…
When Mendes introduced Smith’s performance, he consistently referred to the star as a “he.”
Noteworthy as the British belter came out as non binary last year and has expressed a desire to be referenced as “they/them.”

After realizing the mistake, the ‘Wonder’ singer took to social media to say:
“Oh @samsmith I’m sorry for referring to you as a “he” for your jingle ball introduction. It absolutely slipped my mind. Won’t happen again..Sending you so much love ! Also, you absolutely are one of the funniest people I’ve ever met!”
