Still, Liam didn't tweet about it, so he must have been enjoying himself too much to complain about the lack of privacy. Fans were quick to spy pics of Liam, shirtless and smoking – and you know that drummed up a whole lot of concern about his health.
By now it's no big surprise to see Liam smoking, but you know the fandom, always looking out for the guys' lungs/voices and general health. We're caring like that.
The other criticism fans have to deal with? Some jabs circulating that Liam looked a bit...shall we say...doughier than usual? Okay, it just looks like Liam has taken a break from his excessive workouts, but just because he doesn't have chiseled abs anymore doesn't mean he's fat. One Direction pick up their tour schedule again and you know Liam will return to his rigorous exercise schedule. Fear not.
One fan tweeted: "IF LIAM PAYNE IS FAT OR OVERWEIGHT THEN I'M AN ORCA WHALE," while another tweeted: "People are calling you fat @Real_Liam_Payne! It's absolutely ridiculous! You look amazing and gorgeous as always!"
Others found middle ground, like this fan, who tweeted: "I'm not saying he's fat or anything, but I think Liam Payne should start exercising again and get his muscle back"
