Liam Payne took to Twitter to slam paparazzi outlet Stupid Famous People, after being called out for flipping off photographers and ignoring fans. Read what the One Direction star tweeted in his defense. Who's right? Liam Payne got quite irritated with the paparazzi over the weekend, taking to Twitter to slam the outlet Stupid Famous People.
Liam came under fire for reportedly ignoring fans and flipping off photographers outside of his New York hotel.
The One Direction star tweeted: "well...these past few days have been a bit of a complicated venture, how is everyone?"
He added, "those of you who stuck with me id like to say a big thank you im just a normal guy this isn't easy and we are all still learning everyday"
Then Liam tweeted a pic of himself wearing a Batman hat, joking, "for those who you who have doubted me and now turn to hate id like to say one thing...i am batman"
And then he let the paparazzi have it, writing, "as for @stupidfamous id rather be a stupidfamousperson than an ugly bald guy who follows teenagers with a camera, get a proper job you creep"
Liam also let fans know that photographers are to blame when they can't stop for pics, writing, "just so you guys know this guy is usually the main reason we rant allowed to stop for fans you want someone to blame..."
Stupid Famous responded, "Haha Twitter feud! @Real_Liam_Payne don't hate just bc you are turning into Justin Bieber!"
Liam fired back, "@stupidfamous Personally there's nothing I'd love more than you to shut your account down and leave me and my buddies alone so bye bye now;)"
Stupid Famous noted, "We've always been entirely professional and respectful of you, until your bodyguard decided to be a rude tw*t last night."
They added, "@Real_Liam_Payne Our apologies for making 30 million of your fans very happy by releasing videos of your group on our YouTube channel."
Further, they blamed Liam's Twitter rant on the fandom's reaction to his new girlfriend, tweeting: "@Real_Liam_Payne Doesn't surprise me that you would use paparazzi as a scapegoat because of your frustration over the new GF fandom hate."
This morning, Stupid Famous People had more words for Liam, tweeting, "@Real_Liam_Payne Respected your privacy last night by not filming when your bodyguard slammed a little girl against a car outside the party."
They added, "@Real_Liam_Payne will be doing more 'Look, I'm finally being nice to fans!' PR outside the Four Seasons Hotel on E. 58th St again today."
No doubt things are stressful for One Direction right now, with their This Is Us movie premieres, the VMAs, and endless interviews.
Add to that photographers and fans mobbing Liam and the rash of hate that he's gotten for dating Sophia Smith...and it's probably all a bit overwhelming, don't you think?
