One Direction’s Liam Payne is mocked on Twitter over his reaction to fake gay photos

Celeb Clam Comments Off 202961

Poor little Liam Payne is not a happy bunny. Not only has he been the victim of a sex photos hoax but he’s been mocked on Twitter for announcing that he’s not gay.

Liam spoke out about his sexuality after a series of photo-shopped pictures were posted online which appeared to falsely show him getting up close and personal with another man.

The 21-year-old One Direction singer took to Twitter to deny the authenticity of the of the ‘gay’ images, saying: “Wow, as if people think that weird photo thing going around is actually me lol – think I’d rather tweet a full frontal than people have a look at that.”

When several gay fans apparently asked why Liam seemed so offended, he added: ”I’m not homophobic. But I’m also 100% not gay, so when somebody says I am, I’m gunna say I’m not, which does not make me a homophobe.”

Ginger Clam decided to see what all the fuss was about so we had a quick search online and found an image of a man with his fingers up another man’s butt. We thought about posting a version of it here but we couldn’t be bothered (besides, you never know when a vicar might be reading at this).

Meanwhile, a laugh-fest was unfolding on Twitter with people cruelly mocking Liam’s announcement. One person posted: “@Real_Liam_Payne – you’ve successfully alienated your gay fans, why not alienated your overweight fans?”

Another wrote: “Instead of his pissy little Twitter rant, @Real_Liam_Payne should’ve simply tweeted ‘I am not homophobic” and ‘I love our gay fans’.”

Social media: don’t you just love it.
