Sam Smith Finally Talks About THAT Quarantine Meltdown Post
When the Stay With Me singer, Sam Smith, posted his quarantine meltdown tweet, there was no way they could have thought how bad it could backfire. People on social media lashed out at the LGBT star for, apparently, mocking quarantine. Their tweet apparently mocked people in lockdown while they themself are living in their Los Angeles mansion. It might be unintentional, or lacking thorough-thinking. However, it was certainly ignorant towards many people around the globe who are facing real problems in lockdown.

Sam Smith Now Talks About Their Quarantine Meltdown Tweet
The heated tweets against Sam Smith are on the internet even today. They might even be resurfacing now that the singer has decided to speak up about what happened. They may have deleted the post, but screenshots of their facial expressions that mark the “stages of quarantine meltdown” are still present, and some might even remember them by it in the future. However, the I’m Ready singer appeared on Heart Breakfast radio show to clear themself in front of host Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden. Here is what they told them and the audience:
“It wasn’t [a meltdown] – it was six weeks ago I posted a picture and everyone else was posting pictures. It was probably bad timing of me, but I use my social media as if it’s just my friends on it. I posted with my humour and stuff, but it just didn’t get picked up very well. But I didn’t mean any malice by it at all… I’m always sharing all of my feelings all the time and trying to be as human as possible but sometimes maybe people can read it wrongly. But that wasn’t really meaning it in a malicious or nasty way, I was just trying to be myself.”
Is this enough reason to let Sam Smith go over his quarantine meltdown post?
