Sam Smith is sending their love to Shawn Mendes!
On Thursday night (December 10), the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball concert aired on The CW, and Shawn introduced Sam‘s performance.
During his introduction, he called Sam a “he,” which is the wrong pronouns for Sam, who goes by they/them.
The next morning (December 11), Shawn posted a public apology on his Instagram story.
“Oh @samsmith I’m so sorry for referring to you as a ‘he’ for you jingle ball introduction,” Shawn wrote. “It absolutely slipped my mind. Wont happen again..Sending you so much love! Also you absolutely are one of the funniest people I’ve ever met! ❤️❤️”
Sam responded a couple of hours later, writing, “We’re all learning together 🤍🤍 Happy holidays, all my love xx”
