Grammy Award-winning musician Sam Smith took to Instagram on Tuesday to draw attention to an account with the handle “@gaysamsmith” that openly mocked the artist’s sexuality.

The description of the account: “WE HATE F** SMITH. There is a f**, his name is sam. when he’s on, i like to cry. he is gay but that’s okay, we can all make fun of him.”

Next to a screenshot of the offending profile, Smith posted the following message to his Instagram account: “This genuinely doesn’t offend me, coz I’m way too [thick] skinned when it comes to this kind of s***. But I just wanted to share this with everyone, so you can see how homophobia is still SO PRESENT in our society!!”

Smith came out in 2014 to FADER magazine, revealing that his first album “In the Lonely Hour” was written about a man he loved.
