Via his Twitter account, Liam Payne stated that it was ridiculous to believe that he has a shred of homophobia in his body. Payne landed in hot water after making the following statement at a One Direction concert.

He said prior to belting the song “Girl Almighty”:

“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.”

Many people viewed the remarks as homophobic and slammed the 21-year-old singer, which prompted him to explain himself and apologize in a series of tweets:

“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. 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.”
