On Monday, the 20-year-old said he is “sorry” for “accidentally” liking the tweet as he was “scrolling down a feed.” He wrote:

In a May 2018 interview with Billboard, Mendes spoke out about his frequent collaborator Teddy Geiger, who came out as a transgender woman in October 2017.

When asked how other straight men can support the LGBT community, he responded:

“There was a moment when I remember I referred to Teddy as she, like without thinking, and it takes time to be able to learn that, obviously. And the way she looked at me was this intense amount of joy that I swear if everybody in the world experienced one of their best friends experiencing that, there would be no questions. People would not be questioning it. It’s just not worth it to question it. Let somebody be and feel and live how they want to live.”

Amen to that!
