Sam Smith was one of the stars who attended this year’s BRIT Awards, and they showed up on the red carpet, wearing an all-black poofy outfit.
Their eye-catching fit started a meme fest on Twitter, and netizens have mixed feelings about the “Unholy” singer’s BRIT Awards look. Here are some of the memes and negative comments about them:

Meanwhile, there were people who liked Smith’s outfit and/or came to their defense…
Actor and political activist Laurence Fox tweeted:
“This is actually pretty masterful from the Sam Smith team. Also weirdly, my favourite outfit yet.

One Twitter user wrote:
“IM SORRY BUT SAM SMITH IS SO ICONIC”
Another user expressed:
“If you have any issue with Sam Smith and how they present themselves, please think for a second if you’d be phased if it were a ‘conventionally attractive’ female model or muscle Gay. Sam is wearing this because no matter what they wear they are criticised. They look wonderful!”
Singer-songwriter Simon Curtis also tweeted:
“Sam Smith is being so playful and fearless and it has been so inspiring to witness”
Sam Smith is marvellous and they can wear what ever the hell they want. I was more offended by Tom Greenan thinking it was acceptable to ask Ellie Goulding if her breasts were real but that’s ok, as it was just a joke and women just need to lighten up, right? 🙄

#SamSmith conformed to what a male artist should be. He lost weight. He sung ballads. He won Oscar’s. But he wasn’t happy.
Once they started being themselves, they took back control, they look happy & rewarded on their own terms.
That’s power. pic.twitter.com/49Zb60aEK1
