Liam Payne

If you put a gun to my head, I wouldn’t be able to tell you which member of One Direction was Liam Payne. Is he the one with the hair? No? Crap, I got nothing. Anyway, last week he apparently tweeted about how much he liked Duck Dynasty, a month after that whole debacle with the Phil Robertson‘s GQ interview, and people started accusing him of being a homophobe. So of course, he took to Twitter to clear the air with only the most delicate of words …

Oh honey. Really? Freedom of speech? You understand that freedom of speech is supposed to protect you from being jailed or otherwise legally punished for your opinions, right? It doesn’t mean you can say what you want and people on Twitter won’t respond to it. But seriously, I’m pretty sure Liam’s not a homophobe. He has terrible taste in TV and a decided lack of a filter, sure, but not a homophobe.
