Liam Payne Just Threw Some Shade at Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik
It all started when Payne reposted a photo of the 1D boys in which he’s covering Malik’s face on a promotional poster. As we reported last week, Malik bailed on the Asian leg of their tour after rumors began swirling that he cheated on his fiance, Perrie Edwards.

Payne promised it was simply a joke as he was trying to “make light of a situation,” but the 1D fans were not having it.
Then, in the midst of that whole debacle, a Justin Bieber fan tweeted at Payne saying the “Boyfriend” crooner will always be most successful than him. Payne made the mistake of using the opportunity to throw shade at Bieber, tweeting back, “How many times have I been arrested?”
As expected, this ignited a huge feud between 1D and Bieber fans. Payne tried to brush off the drama tweeting, “Nevermind,” with the hashtags #ringoffire and #banter… But it wasn’t enough to stop the war, resulting in #LIAMHASNOCHILL trending worldwide on Twitter all. day. long.
