Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s relationship is one of the most talked about celebrity couplings on the internet. Fans were convinced the singers were only dating in order to promote their new single Señorita; a theory that the pair dispelled with a super steamy performance at the MTV VMA Awards last month.

Now, the couple has clapped back at trolls who have been criticising their kissing techniques, in a way that is delighting and disgusting fans in equal measure.

On Thursday 12 September, Mendes took to Instagram to share a video in which he explained: "So we saw on Twitter and stuff, you guys saying about the way we were kissing and how it looks weird... Like we kiss like fish...”

“It really hurt our feelings,” Cabello interjected.

“"We just want to show you how we really kiss,” Mendes adds, as the pair grab each other’s throats and plant their wide-open mouths on one another.

The hitmakers famous friends seemed to enjoy the response - which has had over 8.5 million views since it was uploaded six hours ago.

Charlie Puth commented, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAH” while former One Direction star Niall Horan posted tons of laughing emojis.

Elsewhere, social media personality Brent Riviera joked: “Experts say they’re still ‘just friends.’”
