Liam Payne Faces Backlash After Gun Photo
Liam Payne is facing backlash after posing for a photo with a gun.
The One Direction singer visited some of the “Duck Dynasty” stars in Louisiana on Wednesday, and someone snapped a picture of the group smiling and holding guns (see right and below).
His pal Andy Samuels tweeted, “Today I shot a gun at a clay disc thing and I loved it.”
But when the image began making the rounds on Twitter, many fans took Payne to task.
One disappointed fan tweeted, “@Real_Liam_Payne it’s not funny to hold a gun, bc everyday thousand of people die by gunfire!”
“Thanks for glamorizing Americas gun crisis that literally kills countless numbers of innocent people everyday seriously,” wrote another follower.
Earlier this year, Payne slammed the media for twisting his support of “Duck Dynasty” into some kind of endorsement of homophobia.
Payne himself has not yet addressed the gun controversy on Twitter.
He’s had an eventful week, already having dealt with fake naked photos being leaked.
What do you think of his gun picture — bad idea, or no big deal?
