Liam Payne is responding to some Twitter backlash after people were calling him homophobic following a comment he made in a recent One Direction concert.
The 21-year-old singer was introducing the sing “Girl Almighty” and something he said was misconstrued.
“This is my favorite song off the last album, and it is about trying to find that number one woman of your life, which none of you can relate to, ’cause most of you are girls. Except for the boys in here, you know what I’m talking about,” Liam reportedly told the crowd.
“lol think some people take things to literal these days not gunna comment on it anymore you guys know what I meant it was meant in general,” Liam later tweeted. “I am in no way shape or form homophobic that’s a ridicules thing to say and I’m not here to offend people so take it as you will.”

On Louis: “Well, obviously I was a bit shocked, but he’s taken super well to it…[Briana Jungwirth]‘s a lovely girl.
On how Louis feels about becoming a dad: “He’s very excited with what’s going on with him at the moment and I feel that stuff like that happens sometimes. He’s taking it very seriously.”
On Zayn: “I haven’t spoken to him recently and he’s off doing his own thing and taking his time. It is a difficult thing to leave the band, but his heart wasn’t in it. You have to go with your heart and say, ‘I can’t do this anymore’ and ‘There is something out there that I do want to do that is different,’ and that’s fine.”
