'One Direction' Singer Liam Payne

Yes, I Love 'Duck Dynasty'

No, I Don't Hate Gays

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.?

Just because I think homosexuality is wrong does not mean I hate homosexuals. But homosexuals will hate you if you share your beliefs, which means they wish to curb free speech unless you believe what they do.

Trying to convince normal people that two men having butt sex is normal is a tough sell. Normal people aren't buying it.

According to "Blind Gossip" they are saying there are photos on JBs phone of a boyband member kissing another guy. (Most commenters suspect Liam) And then BOOM. This story comes out. Coincidence? I think not.

What one of you ever get to say what is normal??Oh wait I forgot how you live is normal but how anyone else lives isn't.Stupid fools when God tells you in person what is right and what is wrong then you can tell other what they can and can't do.Go review your own sins before you ever try to point out anyone elses.

The Duck Dynasty show has nothing to do with homosexuality. One of the guys on the show when asked said he though butt sex was sinful but that wasn't on the show, it was in an interview.

Duck Dynasty's ratings on A&E have taken a hit (look it up if you don't believe me) so you can like DD or hate DD, who really cares?! Liam Payne has a right to feel the way he wants just like LGBTs & supporters do too. Nobody really gives a rat's ass anymore. DD and neo-conservative Phil is an old, what a yawner of a story.

Meanwhile, *****ia continues to expand their ban on gays in general, and the mainstream gay rights organizations have... no comment! Obviously they had much more urgent issues to address, I mean, UKs #1 boyband going against the will of the libs?! What could be more serious!?
