One Direction’s Liam Payne Lashes Out at Bloggers after Duck Dynasty Tweet

Liam Payne of One Direction has been causing controversy lately. Last week, he took to twitter to apologize for photos taken of the singer standing dangerously close to the edge on a 34 story roof ledge, calling the snaps and the behavior “stupid and irresponsible.”

He has also been apologizing to fans for not stopping to take photos with them outside his residence, explaining, “Sorry if I’ve been rude to anyone but I’ve come to realise if I take one picture more people keep coming everyday xxx hope everyone’s good”

Once again, the twitterverse is mad at him, but Liam is not apologizing! The drama began when Liam tweeted kudos to Will Robertson, member of the Duck Dynasty clan, and son of the controversial Phil Robertson, who raised ire when he made racist and homophobic remarks in a GQ interview.

As you would expect, there was immediate, and negative reaction, which Liam responded to:

  After responding to a few fans, with responses like “…people can love who they want , its none of my business” and “its just ruining twitter for me” Liam signed off of the social network. But then, he was back a few hour later, furious at the bloggers and news sources that picked reported his tweet. And then the rant began:





Rule number one: DO NOT GOOGLE YOURSELF. To be fair, although I’m giving Liam a big side eye, and questioning his judgement, I wouldn’t categorize his initial tweet as “homophobic.”


After popular gay blogger, Tyler Oakley, expressed disappointment, Liam responded:

And then more ranting at journalists and bloggers, Liam careful to point out that he’s not mad at his fans:





HA HA at the acknowledgement that he’ll be hearing from his PR people today. He might be a bit of a slow learner.

What was he thinking, tweeting congratulations to the Duck Dynasty people? Of course he was going to get a negative reaction after tweeting support to someone who stands for homophobia and racism in many people’s minds. Is it possible he’s in such a bubble, he doesn’t follow the news?

It looks like Liam is taking a break from twitter after last night. A wise decision. Finally.
