Liam Payne of One Direction felt the need to explain a personal supportive tweet he made out to the “Duck Dynasty” family this weekend on Twitter after his comment landed the 1D star in a bit of hot water. The family has ruffled quite a few feathers after patriarch Phil Robertson mentioned what was perceived as homophobic comments in a GQ magazine interview. So when Payne sent “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson a message about upholding family values, Fox News shares this Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014 that a few followers were upset the singer might back any anti-gay views.

Prior to the controversy and his venting, Liam Payne took to Twitter this Sunday sending this message out to Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” that was not taken too well by quite a few One Direction fans and the public at large:

“Huge love to you/your family huge respect for your business prosperities and the family values you still all behold. big fan,” he wrote to Willie.

Though Payne may have meant no harm, some took it to the boy band member agreeing with the Robertson family of “Duck Dynasty” fame’s potentially homophobic views. The English singer quickly defended his comment, saying that simply because he is a fan of a particular show does not mean he endorses all of their beliefs.

“Being a fan of someones show and the way they still hold a family together doesnt mean i am ok with all they say,” he wrote on Twitter.

Liam Payne seemed quite frustrated that others were taking a simple supportive tweet to mean so much more than the One Direction member intended.

"Oh my god can someone literally not be a fan if a show without bring labeled WTf I bought dinner the other day it made a news story.”

"What I gotta do to please you b******s I'm a 20 year old just living life as you did when u where twenty but in extraordinary circumstances.”

"I can't do anything without being judged u try that and write about it."

"Sick of all this bull il be back again when the freedom of speech law is back and people don't believe to much into the bulls*** they read."

Soon he realized he would probably be getting into trouble by the group’s music manager, he then added via Twitter, “"Can't wait for the call tomorrow where I get told of for cussing had to be said like I said before much worse has happened In the world.”

While quite a few of his tweets seemed to appear like a vent session, this one in particular seemed vocal and annoyed, adds the source site:

“Pick ur balls up off the floor and get on with it instead of taking advantage of every word said and twisting it for your own gain!”
