ITV chat show host Lorraine Kelly has faced backlash from viewers after misgendering non-binary singer Sam Smith. During a fashion segment with Vogue Williams, Lorraine repeatedly referred to Sam with male pronouns, despite Sam preferring they/them pronouns. Lorraine went on to describe Sam's outfit and commented that it was too big for "him." Vogue, on the other hand, correctly used the preferred pronouns.

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to express their disappointment with Lorraine's misgendering, with some calling it an "awkward" and "uncomfortable" moment. This incident comes after Richard Madeley previously apologized for misgendering Sam during a debate on Good Morning Britain. The discussion revolved around whether Sam's new music video was over-sexualized. Despite the criticism, Sam's message of using gender-neutral pronouns remains important and should be respected.
