It's brave to drop a new album around the same time that Taylor Swift does, because it's just common knowledge that basically everyone is focusing on her and nothing else.
So the fact that Sam Smith dropped his new album in the same week, fans have pitted the two against each other.
According to BuzzFeed, Sam got in on the online drama, by 'liking' the below tweet that EPICALLY shades Taylor.
"When someone thinks Taylor Swift is a better artist, singer, and song writer than Sam Smith," it reads, with an over the top laughing GIF.
But Sam wasn't the only celeb being extra salty towards Tay Tay.
One fan pointed out that they were only excited for Taylor to appear on SNL because comedian Tiffany Haddish was hosting it, and actress Reese Witherspoon 'liked' that tweet, as BuzzFeed also pointed out. Yikes.
However, Sam has since come forward and addressed his 'shade', claiming that the like was a total accident.
One fan wrote, "Maybe it was an accident.. Sam would never do such a thing," and Sam retweeted it.
As for Reese, she has kept her 'like' loud and proud on her profile... is there beef there that we never knew about?!
Maybe we'll never know.
