Liam Payne has earned the title of Main Person of the day on Twitter after criticizing his ex Only one direction bandmates

It’s a title that absolutely no one wants, and it essentially means that you’ve pissed off a lot of people at once and are about to experience the buildup of your life.

This week, former 1D star Liam featured on Logan Paul’s Impausible podcast where, in an hour-long interview, he made a batch headline-grabbing comments.

These included claims that he and Louis Tomlinson hated each other while in the band, claims that a band member threw him against a wall, and admitting that there are “a lot of things” he “doesn’t like”. Zayn Malik.

The singer also claimed that One Direction was built around him, as when he had auditioned two years earlier, Simon Cowell told him to come back and make something work.

He was, Liam claimed, essentially the first member of One Direction and that the X Factor bosses “started with my face and worked around the rest”.

Other comments that caused Directioner annoyance were his claim that his first solo single had outsold the rest of the former members’ debuts, which fans of Harry Styles particularly objected to.

As Liam’s podcast and comments went viral, fans of the other former members and those who still love One Direction took to Twitter to mercilessly mock the 28-year-old.

Many compared his career to that of Harry, who recently headlined the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend festival and Coachella, and whose third studio album is sweeping the charts.

One fan commented: ‘Liam Payne is doing a podcast with Logan Paul and Harry Styles is performing at a sold-out Wembley Stadium in a few weeks. the levels are hilarious (sic)’.

“Liam Payne, you’re sitting there with Logan Paul on his podcast while Harry is breaking records and playing 2 sold-out nights at Wembley Stadium in less than 3 weeks,” repeated another.

The Directioners were always known for being among the wildest fanbase of them all, and former member Liam had this wildness directed at him after the comments.

One joked that the “Strip That Down” singer was “a one-way Trump supporter,” while another asked, “Does Liam Payne have a manager or is he just bleeding free?”

“The way Harry dodges questions like the plague while Liam Payne airs everyone’s dirty laundry for some loose change and a chicken wing,” another scoffed.

One fan shared a photo of a puppy snuggled up in bed and wrote: ‘how i sleep knowing i was never a liam payne girl (sic)’.

Others, after watching the podcast, saw their dreams of a future One Direction reunion burn before their eyes, with one frustrated fan writing: ‘thank you liam payne for destroying the little hope I had of a reunion ever happening. of one direction’.

It’s been a bumpy few weeks for Liam, with the shocking interview after he confronted rumors that he cheated about ex-fiancée Maya Henry with his new girlfriend Aliana Mawla, which Aliana has vehemently denied.

Liam and Maya, 21, had been together for three yearscommitting in 2020.

The singer went public with new allian flame last week, just days after his engagement to Maya was confirmed to be over.

A spokesperson for Aliana said she was “very taken aback by the allegations that have been made about a relationship with Liam while he was still engaged or involved with his ex-fiancée.”

They added that “under no circumstances” would he have engaged in a public relationship “if there was any truth to the comments.”

Liam’s time in One Direction came to an end in 2016, when the phenomenal group took an extended hiatus after six years together.

All five former members have launched into solo careers, with Harry in particular enjoying massive success on charts around the world.
