They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I have just four: What is going on?
As many of you know, self-described “dick monster” Sam Smith is dating 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn. The two have already taken some totally not staged paparazzi photos together and the latest crop of these au natural snaps have hit the web. And oh, boy.

They are going IN. Like, a dementor would look at that photo and be like, “Sam, that’s a bit much.” According to the Daily Mail, the photo was taken outside a fish-and-chip shop in London. We can only assume the two were on a quest for leftover crumbs.
The photo lit up Twitter with opinions in two camps: this is too much and LEAVE SAM SMITH ALONE.
I hope Sam Smith had fun because I just called the police https://t.co/PjMYZRAIGL

Either this is Sam Smith’s first kiss or he’s a dementor. Either way, somebody should intervene before it gets any worse… pic.twitter.com/0ai1yX6GZe

So this Sam Smith thing is starting to feel a bit like bullying. By all means think his music is bland, dislike him or think he’s an airhead, but let him kiss his boyf in peace. It’s ugly to see members of our community leading the mockery of an openly gay singer for a little PDA

Regardless of how they kiss, it’s nice to see Sam Smith happy, I guess? Maybe he’s crying less?
