The "first" argument might seem kinda petty -- especially since Smith didn't state he was first as fact -- but Black tells TMZ, "I think knowing our collective LGBTQ history is important. That's all. We stand on the shoulders of countless brave men and women. We should honor that."
As for the shot about Daley ... Black wouldn't elaborate. We've reached out to Smith, but no word back.
Fun fact: Elton John also won an Oscar, long before Black, in 1994.
Smith has now apologized.
Apologies for the mix up @DLanceBlack I'll be sure to check out your films now x Belated Congrats on the Oscar x
