Sam Smith doesn't like Michael Jackson and the internet responds

Former American Idol runner up Adam Lambert posted a video on Instagram including Sam Smith and they were chilling on a boat being themselves and in the background you can hear Sam say “I don’t like Michael Jackson, but this is a good song” while "Human Nature" is playing in the background. Someone in the background says "Oh" clearly shocked at this response. The video was deleted but the internet never forgets and the responses to Sam on Twitter are vicious.

Fans of MJ were quickly coming for the "singer" and were not amused. Stephanie Mills who claimed to have dated Jackson had the below response.

“Don’t come for MICHAEL JACKSON when you wish you have sold as many records and you wish you were the King of Pop like he was. I’m so tired of you people studying our music, and studying our artist and claiming that you don’t like our music.”

Should we still be celebrating MJ and his music?
