One Direction certainly does love its Twitter. While former member Zayn Malik engaged in a social media war of words with Calvin Harris earlier this week, Liam Payne is using Twitter to put accusations of homophobia to rest.

According to the Daily Mail, the boy-bander had been accused of making fun of gay fans during a recent concert.

Here's what audience members say Payne told the crowd: "This is my favorite song off the last album, and it is about trying to find that number one woman of your life, which none of you can relate to, ’cause most of you are girls. Except for the boys in here. You know what I’m talking about."

The backlash clearly didn't sit well with Payne, who took to Twitter to defend himself.


Let it out, Liam. Let it out. But, for the record, some girls like One Direction and girls, and some guys like One Direction and girls, too.
