So Much For The Drama: Sam Smith Apologized To Dustin Lance Black

February 29, 2016 / Posted by:

What 2016 has really been needing is a good old-fashioned gay scandal and we almost got one when Dustin Lance Black double-slapped Sam Smith on Twitter last night. But now it’s over….

Sam Smith won the Oscar for Best Song for “Writing’s On The Wall” and during his acceptance speech, he sort of said that he’s going down in history as the first openly gay dude to win the gold man trophy. That summoned a wave of side-eyes from openly gay Oscars winners of the past like Elton John, Stephen Sondheim, Howard Ashman’s ghost and Dustin Lance Black. When reporters in the press room pointed out to Sam Smith that he’s not the first openly gay dude to win an Oscar, he asked “Who’s the other person?” A reporter brought up Howard Ashman who won the Best Song Oscar twice for “Under The Sea” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Sam’s response was:

“I should know him. We should date.”

That’d be kind of hard since Howard Ashman has been dead since 1991.

DLB corrected Sam Smith on Twitter and also brought the shadiness when he added, “…it may be time to stop texting my fiancé.” BOOM. I was waiting for Sam Smith to turn it into a big gay drama by slapping back at DLB, but that didn’t happen and it’s not going to happen.

Sam Smith apologized to DLB on Twitter before the two hugged it out. Ugh, I hate it when people act mature.

DLB also called a truce. He also let Twitter know that Sam Smith and his fiancé Tom Daley are friends and that’s why he was surprised that Sam didn’t know he’s an openly gay Oscar winner:

DLB needs to have a seat in the section marked “Bitch, Please,” because he knew what he was doing with that “time to stop texting my fiancé” tweet. Dude was trying to make it look like Sam Smith was mentored in the art of home wrecking by Sienna Miller. Whatever, I’m just sad that this mess was over before it really, really began. But wait….

Look at Dustin Lance Black’s “drink water” comment. QUICK! Someone tell Sam Smith that DLB wasn’t telling him to drink water for his hangover. He was calling Sam Smith a thirsty trollop tramp whore! There may still be life in this gay drama after all. Let’s fan the flames! And I see all of you fanning me. Very funny.
