Andrew Tate has shared his thoughts on singer Sam Smith.

Smith has hit headlines over the last few weeks thanks to their live performances of their number one single 'Unholy' - which tells the story of a man in an adulterous relationship.

However, in order to play up to the theatrics of the hit track's title, Smith has repeatedly taken to the stage in flamboyant outfits that have a demonic flare.

For example, back in February, Smith performed the track live at the 65th annual Grammy Awards alongside collaborator Kim Petras. That particular performance received an outpouring of backlash from viewers after Smith opted to perform in a red outfit complete with a horned tophat.

Some upset viewers branded the performance as "satanic", with US Senator Ted Cruz taking to Twitter to voice his disgust. "This is… evil," he wrote in response to commentator Liz Wheeler's post that read: "Don’t fight the culture wars, they say. Meanwhile, demons are teaching your kids to worship Satan. I could throw up."

And more recently, 30-year-old Smith divided social media users after footage from their highly-anticipated Gloria tour was shared on TikTok.

One video showed Smith donned in an all-black ensemble with red and gold detailing. Alongside the corset and puffy sleeves, they also completed the devilish look with fishnets, knee-high boots, a top hat that had multiple red devil horns sticking out of it as well as a diamante-encrusted pitchfork.

And one person who has taken offense to the daring look is controversial influencer Andrew Tate - who has recently been released from a Romanian prison while under investigation for crimes relating to sexual assault, exploitation, organized crime, and human trafficking.

Tate, 36, has openly discussed his choice to follow Islam, having previously described it as the only real religion left on the planet.

Speaking on the Full Send Podcast in 2022, Tate revealed that the reasoning behind his beliefs was that Allah is the only God that is respected and that people still fear.

Now, after seeing footage from Smith's latest concert, Tate has criticized the singer for "openly worshipping the devil".

Sharing the footage with his six million followers, Tate called out Smith, while also misgendering the non-binary singer (who has repeatedly stated that they prefer to be addressed by 'they/them' pronouns).

"This is Sam Smith," Tate writes alongside the video. "Why does he need to literally worship the devil as openly and abhorrently as possible to sing his songs?"

Many of Tate's followers agreed with the influencer's sentiment - with some suggesting that Smith should be "canceled" in the same way people tried to cancel Tate.

However, others were quick to call him out for attacking Smith.

One person replied: "Why do you feel the need to always be overdramatic towards every single human in society? Sam Smith isnt you, so if you could gladly stop complaining about the world and realize [you're] the problem everyones complaining about, it would be very much appreciated."

A second added: "Are we seriously judging an entire group of people by a short clip of one entertainer? It’s a show… you do realize that people on stage, in movies, etc aren’t actually the characters they portray right? They’re costumes, & other props used to put on a show. Settle down."

And many others pointed out that Smith's outfits are simply a reflection of the track's theme, 'Unholy', and that they're dressing no differently to many other music stars.
