Speaking to Sky Sports Premier League, Villa boss Smith claimed that 'nobody in the stadium' thought that Spurs should have been awarded a first-half penalty.
Bjorn Engels tackled Steven Bergwijn in the penalty area, just before the break, with the on-field referee, Martin Atkinson, initially opting against awarding a spot-kick.
But following consultation with VAR, the decision was overturned, Son took the penalty, which was initially saved by Pepe Reina, but the Spurs man netted from the rebound.
In the end, it played its part in the North London club winning the game, with Engels calamitous error right at the death resulting in Spurs walking away with all three points.
But the Tottenham faithful were seemingly baffled by Smith's comments about VAR and that penalty incident, as they made it clear that the right call was made.
Smith's frustrations were perhaps understandable after the match because his side dropped a valuable point they deserved, but many of the Spurs faithful praised VAR for doing the right thing.
Here is a selection of Spurs fans reacting to Dean Smith's comments:
