You may recall earlier this year when Liam tweeted he was a fan of Duck Dynasty, after star Phil Robertson's controversial homophobic comments made in a GQ interview.
Liam had to tweet in his defense: "Being a fan of someone's show and the way they still hold a family together doesn't mean I am OK with all they say."
But back to that gun pic...plenty of fans called him out for glamorizing guns, even though he spent the day shooting clay discs. All in sporting good fun? Liam and pal Andy Samuels spent some time with the Robertson family at their home with Andy tweeting: "Today I shot a gun at a clay disc thing and I loved it."
One fan slammed Liam's choice, tweeting: "Thanks for glamorizing Americas gun crisis that literally kills countless numbers of innocent people everyday seriously."
Another wrote: "It's not funny to hold a gun, because every day thousands of people die by gunfire!"
A One Direction spokesman simply stated: "Liam was clay pigeon shooting with friends."
