After Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black called out Sam Smith for his incorrect speech at the Academy Awards Sunday night (Feb. 28), the singer has now issued an apology (if you'd like to call it that) on Twitter.

Smith began his brief series of tweets with "So hungover. genuinely feels like a dream," before explaining that the point of his speech was to shed light on the LGBT community "who i love so dearly."

The U.K. singer then went on to tweet a half-assed apology to Black, saying he will now check out the screenwriter's films (as if Smith has never heard of his Oscar-winning Milk, which won Best Original Screenplay in 2009).

As Black made it clear in his original tweet, there have been other openly LGBT stars like himself who have won Academy Awards prior to the In The Lonely Hour StarSmith took home the Oscar this year for Best Original Song for Spectre's "The Writing's On The Wall."
