One Direction’s Liam Payne Loves ‘Duck Dynasty’, Swears He’s Not Homophobic

Duck Dynasty certainly hasn’t suffered in the ratings, as America’s rednecks have come together to watch the show in record numbers since the whole “anal sex is nasty” debacle involving Phil Robertson. In case you forgot, he started spewing racist and anti-gay bullshit, A&E suspended him, the whole family threatened to quit and, scared of losing out on a massive amount of revenue, A&E backed down and let the show go on as normal, which seems to have worked out well for everyone… and by everyone I mean big corporations and bigots. USA, USA!

In any case, randomly, One Direction‘s Liam Payne was stoked to hear that the show would stay on air and sent the Duck Dynasty guys a wonderful tweet of support about what a big fan he is and how much “prosperity” he wishes for the family, whose ideals are apparently totally in line with his own:

Unsurprisingly, some people weren’t so happy about Liam supporting an openly homophobic and racist family who is making tons of money off their ignorance, so they called him out for it. Now LIAM isn’t happy that people are getting on his case and he’s “clarified” his initial comments (read from the bottom up):

Can we just not with this? I doubt Liam is homophobic given the fact that probably half his band is gay. LOL, I kid (OR DO I?!). Clearly he’s backtracking here since he went on about appreciating their “values” as a family – he’s not that fucking stupid. A family is in the news for being bigots of the highest degree and you tweet them praising their “values”, but you don’t support those values? Give me a break. Nice try, Liam. Maybe stick to singing your cutesy songs.

  • LOL at him wanting the return of “freedom of speech laws.” does he not understand that that refers to the GOVERNMENT restricting what you say, not to being protected from the press?

    • Full Definition of BIGOT
      : a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

      • I’m sorry; who’s the bigot here? This random dude who expresses his opinions, or everyone else who jumps down his throat, criticizing his beliefs, saying how wrong he is, trying to get him all the negative attention in the world and getting him kicked off a show….all while expressing and justifying their set opinions? I ask again…..who is the bigot here? I find it all kind of funny.

  • Knowing the media outcry over Duck Dynasty,he should have known better than to post that tweet,especially using the words “family values”.He can’t be THAT ignorant!

  • I mean, don’t get me wrong, but nit-picking at others’ opinions will *never* change their opinions. If anything, it spawns more prejudice, negativity, and hate. So by all means, personally seek out and hate on somebody who has any form or sort of opinion unlike yours, bc that’ll change the world. Bigotry indeed. :/

  • To quote Rick Warren:
    Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.
    Everyone crying bigot needs to take a seat.

  • I really love DUCK DYNASTY -he and his wife I saw on another show and I just really liked them. I hope I still live in America where I do have a RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH– I don’t believe in gay anything gay marriage, it is perversion and will never be accepted because it represents a brokenness . Many have been molested, raped or abandoned and are broken. I can identify with abandonment, and being approached by a family member but it the gay lifestyle is un-natural and Aids and hiv killed two good friends. All were looking for love but the wrong kind. THe only lover you need is that of Jesus CHrist-that is what Duck Dynansty talk about Jesus- and I love them for it and I love them for their moral foundation. I am not homophobic -are you gays moral phobic?

  • From what I have seen gays and GLAAD are the biggest most intolerant bunch of people I ever seen. They tried to get Phil fired from his job where he is making a living-that sounds like bigots to me. If you don’t agree with the gays the try to get rid of you to destroy you. That shows that many are evil spirited and intolerant. THis is America and I will always agree with you or even with people in my own family but I don’t try to destroy a person. THis is why I avoid gay people many are secretly angry and rude and I don’t deal with people like that. THey are very emotional and don’t have much control . Also some like to talk about sex all the time. Don’t they know anything else or have other interests. Perversion should not be the only thing coming out of your mouth. And again are gays MORAL PHOBIC? scared of morals or people that have them ?
