One Direction’s Liam Payne is fighting back after the Culture Club frontman lambasted Payne for reportedly refusing to take a photo with his niece on the red carpet at Wednesday’s BRIT Awards in London.
To which Payne snarkily remarked: “@BoyGeorge now now boy lets not tell porkies. Firstly thanks for getting my name wrong three times secondly then asking me where is liam?…awkward. Then when you finally got it right saying you wanted Niall instead.”
The 19-year-old then continued: “If you would have asked me for a picture i would have stopped bro i just did what you said and pointed niall out for you so u just keep wearing ur strange hats and enjoy yourself my little Georgie pie… It’s still not cool you just look weird.”
This isn’t the first time the 1D boys have found themselves embroiled in a vicious Twitter spat.
In November, Zayn Malik engaged in a war of words with The Wanted‘s Max George (yes, another British singer with the surname George), which seems to have started after Max posted a string of photos of himself schmoozing with various celebrities at the American Music Awards.
“The first step is acceptance #geekoftheweek,” Malik tweeted. He then added, “Your display just shows how much of a wannabe you are :).”
“That’s not very nice. I was just starting to like you and your RnB hits,” Max fired back. (Their exchange has since been deleted.)
Putting their online brawls aside, the British boy band are still riding high on their successes. During the BRIT Awards, they took home the Global Success Award, recognizing their two hit albums and dedicated fans across the globe — and debuted the video for their charity single, “One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks).”
On Feb. 22, One Direction officially hit the road as the kick-off their eight-month Take Me Home world tour.
