Liam Payne Explains 'Pro' Duck Dynasty Tweet
One Direction star hits back after receiving a barrage of tweets...
One Direction singer sent a tweet to Duck Dynasty TV star Willie Robertson, saying, "huge love to you/your family huge respect for your business prosperities and the family values you still all behold. big fan."
Willie Robertson is the son of controversial Phil Robertson, who recently landed himself in hot water after expressing homophobic opinions in a magazine interview.
Speaking to GQ Magazine, he described homosexuality as a "sin" and "not logical."
Phil was briefly suspended from the show – but after a backlash by fans, the network reinstated him.
A gay rights campaigner tweeted angrily in response to Liam’s message, which then led to a barrage of tweets aimed at the 1D lad.
Liam took to the social networking site on Saturday night (18 January) to set the matter straight, explaining that just because he’s a fan of the show, doesn’t mean he agrees with everything they say.
Being a fan of someones show and the way they still hold a family together doesnt mean i am ok with all they say.
