Sam Smith was the victim of some absolutely horrible comments from radio host Howard Stern recently and the singer responded perfectly.
“Do you know what I love about that guy? He’s… ugly. He’s fat. And I love it,” the shock DJ said on his radio show. “You know what, he looks gay to me. Not that anybody looks gay but he does seem effeminate.
“I feel like that [“Stay With Me”] will be his only hit song. I’d like to get him in here and congratulate him on beating the odds,” Howard added.
Sam took to his Twitter account over the weekend to respond to the horrible comments in a perfect way.

JJJ has all the details about Olivia Holt‘s new gig — as Morgan in Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Never Beast!
The 18-year-old actress dished exclusively to us about her role as Morgan, an animal fairy in the upcoming Disney Fairies movie.
“My character, Morgan is an animal fairy and she has this love for animals and cares so much about them,” Olivia shared. “But I also think her personality and style are so great, it made me fall in love with her!”
Morgan, an animal fairy, has probably the worst job of the animal fairies — she helps baby skunks perfect their aim! Though not a specialist in roars, Morgan knows all about grunts and growls.
Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Never Beast explores an ancient myth of a fabled creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s (Mae Whitman) good friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to help an animal in need. But this animal—massive and strange with glowing green eyes—is not really welcome in Pixie Hollow, and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast before it destroys their home.
Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast hits DVD shelves on March 3rd, 2015.
