They say, “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” but maybe it should say, “hell hath no fury like a twitter fan base scorned.” One Direction star, Liam Payne, learned that the hard way this weekend after he showed some support via Twitter to the Duck Dynasty family and Willie Robertson.
Needless to say, Payne’s Twitter feed lit up. Now, it should be noted that the majority of the responses were in support of what Payne said and the Duck Dynasty family, but the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community had a few things to say as well.
Tyler Oakley, an openly gay YouTube personality, had a special message for the young star when he said, “this changes everything.” Towing behind him his 1 million subscribers, the gay man sought to revive the war they already lost.
Apparently though, Payne’s fan base decided to fight back supporting both him and the Duck Dynasty comments. The twitter user’s comments may have lacked any intellectual argument, but they all banded together nonetheless.
Oakley had even written, “I live for the ignorance in my replies right now. I’ve never seen so many tweens telling me to kill myself and to leave the fandom. Amazing,” at one point.
Payne of course, fed up with the nonsense and the fact that PC soldiers were trying to squander his freedom of speech let loose himself. Unleashing on the media, Payne explained that he was sick of what they considered news—he even explained that someone had reported what he bought for a family dinner.
Annoyed with the gay Twitter users, Payne informed his fan base that he was , “Sick of all this bull,” and that he would, “be back again when the freedom of speech law is back.”
It’s really a shame to see homosexuals not let this one go. Despite the fact that A&E didn’t feel like giving up their cash cow, any person, living within these United States, is allowed to say what they think. Just because it doesn’t necessarily line up with everyone else’s beliefs doesn’t make those other people any more right.
Phil Robertson is protected under the First Amendment, end of story.
How do you feel about the homosexual community calling us ignorant as they spew their double standards? Let us know in a comment below!
