0119_liam_payne_getty_ddOne Direction singer Liam Payne went off via Twitter Saturday night after U.K. journalists blasted him for daring to say he likes "Duck Dynasty" ... and now, Liam's threatening to ditch social media.

Liam tweeted "D.D." star Willie Robertson ... saying he's a big fan and respects the show's family values. Some U.K. media outlets labelled  it homophobic -- and Liam got pissed.

Liam tweeted after, "Being a fan of someones show and the way they still hold a family together doesn't mean i am ok with all they say."

However, Liam began melting down after fans also went on the attack.  He unloaded a barrage of tweets,  bashing the UK media and proclaiming he was "sick of this all" ... and would come back to Twitter once "the freedom of speech law is back."

Do they have that in the U.K.?
