Liam Payne is (Not) Fat, According to Liam Payne

Another 1D Movie
Relive all the concert moments in the upcoming One Direction movie.
Liam Payne has feelings too, you know.

The One Direction member is firing back at critics after an unofficial search for his abs was launched late last month.

It all began when The Daily Mail posted photos of Payne and his “less than toned physique” from Saint Tropez.

The paper compared the 20-year-old’s shirtless bod to this display from October 2013:

1D fans will also recall that back in March, dear Liam was apparently called fat on social media. He laughed it off:


But over the weekend, it looks like he decided that he’d had enough and took to his Instagram to fire this shot:

Liam also shared his BMI (Body Mass Index) for those who are still convinced he’s “fat.”

[Caption: “Now just because I’m sick of seeing this everyday so I just want to clear up what the media do to people these days. Is it wrong to be normal? Or do I have to look like an Olympic swimmer just to get your approval into the cool kids or can I accept that the person I truly love thinks I’m the coolest kid in town anyway? Think I’ll vote the second one ;) enjoy your day people”]

So there you have it, Liam Payne is not fat. Can’t we just let a 20-year-old singer be 20 and not worry about the state of his abs?

Liam and the 1D guys are currently on the North American leg of their Where We Are tour. The group is set to play in East Rutherford, N.J. on Monday and Tuesday, follow by three shows in Foxboro, Mass. starting Thursday.
