LIAM Payne has taken to Twitter to respond to fans after they criticised parts of his upcoming Attitude magazine interview.
The One Direction star gets candid about his ups and downs since the band formed five years ago, and also talks openly and honestly about his band mates.
At one point Liam addresses fan rumours claiming Louis and Harry were secret lovers while discussing America recently passing the same-sex marriage law.
â€œWhen the law changed in the US there were loads of rainbow flags flying at our shows, but I think that was mainly because people think of the Louis and Harry thing [that theyâ€™re secret lovers], which is absolutely nuts and drives me insane,” he says.
â€œItâ€™s like when you know the ins and outs of whatâ€™s going on with people itâ€™s just annoying when itâ€™s so stupid.â€
Liam went on to say thereâ€™s absolutely no truth in the rumours, which he say started when Harry and Louis began living together.
â€œIt becomes like a conspiracy or a cult,â€ he went on.
But fans didn’t seem too happy with the 22-year-old’s comments and took to Twitter in their droves to blast the star.
One wrote: â€œI just want to let you know a lot of people are angry that you’re assuming rainbow flags are just for Larry when they aren’t.”
Another shared a picture of a rainbow flag next to the message: â€œIt’s about making people feel equal and welcome and create a safe and welcoming place, but thanks.â€
And: “The shoot doesn’t even matter in this topic it matters on what you said in the interview that offended us.”
While others weren’t pleased about him bringing up his bandmates at all and also for discussing Briana, who is expecting her first child with Louis.
â€œYou didn’t have to bring up Larry, you didn’t have to bring up the baby gate, this was YOUR interview not Louis or Harry,â€ said a third.
After being flooded with tweets, Liam eventually replied: “It’s funny I thought people appreciated honesty.
“Can see people saying I’m playing ‘the victim’ I don’t feel even 1% a victim at all I had a wonderful time doing the shoot…
“And am blessed with the best job in the world massive thank you to @AttitudeMag for having me along and for everyone who enjoyed reading.” – Daily Mirror
