A video has emerged of Sam Smith being verbally abused in New York, with the singer receiving a string of insults.

The British singer is seen ignoring the woman as she disgustingly brands the Grammy winner a ‘paedophile’ and continues to walk away.

Smith has received a torrent of abuse and criticism from religious sects and conservatives in recent weeks after their performance at the Grammys was branded ‘Satanic’.

“You belong in hell,” the woman shouts as the 27-second clip begins. “Sam Smith belongs in hell. Ya demonic twisted sick b******.”

“Leave the kids alone ya sick f*****. Sam Smith is a paedophile. Ya sick mother ******, Sam Smith,” the woman shouts in what appears to be an Irish accent.

Smith walks away during the encounter and never acknowledges the woman’s vile shouts.

Rolling Stone UK has chosen not to include the video, while a representative for Smith has declined to comment.

Smith faced controversy earlier this month when the aforementioned Grammy performance alongside Kim Petras saw them wearing a hat fashioned with devil horns, while performing against a backdrop of red lighting and dancers writhing in metal cages.

A week later, the pair followed it up with an equally high-stakes performance at the Brit Awards, which saw them performing against the backdrop of a dark and industrial car workshop.

Since then, Morrissey has also bizarrely accused Smith’s label Capital Records of promoting the singer’s perceived ‘Satanism’ over his own music.
