One Direction’s Liam Payne is laughing off an inflammatory concert video of him “shoving” his 1D mate Louis Tomlinson during a recent show. How did he combat such an incendiary clip? With some good old-fashioned sarcasm.
On Twitter, Payne linked to a Heat World blog post titled “This video of Liam Payne shoving Louis Tomlinson on stage is REALLY shocking.” The video shows Payne… playing shoving his band mate in between songs at a recent show in Manchester.
“Simply the funniest story I’ve read to date clearly the person who wrote this has never experienced friendly banter in their life,” Payne wrote on Twitter. He then added, “OH MY GOD THATS SO OUTRAGEOUS HOW DARE I HAVE A JOKE WITH A FRIEND ON STAGE.”
As One Direction approaches its 2016 hiatus, some will continue speculating about souring relationships. Payne and the rest of 1D are ready to proclaim that nobody can drag them down, it seems.
Made In The A.M., the group’s fifth studio set, arrives on Nov. 13.
