Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were none too pleased with being called "terrible" by musician Jake Bugg, taking to Twitter to fire back at Jake's diss on 1D.

In a new interview with Shortlist, Jake responded to reports that Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney were praising One Direction, saying, "Oh, I'm pretty sure they have a good laugh...But it's easy to, isn't it? When you don't have to write any songs."

He added, "People [call them the new Beatles] because they broke America, but that don't mean a thing. I mean, [One Direction] must know that they're terrible. They must know...Calling them the new rock stars is a ridiculous statement. And people should stop making it."

Okay, comparing One Direction to the Beatles may be a bit of a stretch, but it just comes off as sour grapes when Jake slammed 1D.

Louis addressed the diss on Twitter, writing to Jake, "Hi @JakeBugg do you think slagging off boy bands makes you more indie?"

Niall sounded off too, tweeting, "Really buggs me that artists we're fans of flip on us in the press!"

He added, "i dont mind haters, thats fine ! But when your interested in someone and they go and say stuff about u to the press."
