Sam Smith honors Satan at Pfizer-sponsored event

Sponsored by pharmaceutical company Pfizer, the 65th edition of the Grammy Awards caused controversy on social networks, due to the performance of non-binary singer Sam Smith and Kim Petras, a trans artist. Both played Satan on stage, while singing one of his hits, the song Unholy (Profane).

During the show, Smith and Petras were surrounded by people alluding to demons. Smith opted for an all-red outfit, which included high-heeled boots, pants, and a leather shirt. Petras opted for a crimson dress. At one point, the two wear a horned top hat.

In the scenes, it is still possible to see people inside a cage, while being “whipped” by other dancers in the surroundings. Before the performance, Smith vowed to “impact” the Christian community, which he has criticized in the local press.

Sam Smith’s name came to occupy the trending topics of Twitter, in addition to the Pfizer brand, due to a commercial for the company being shown at the ceremony. The company is under investigation by the CDC to see if the company’s Covid-19 vaccines are causing strokes in the elderly.

After the controversy, the singer and the pharmacist did not comment.
