AceShowbiz - Liam Payne is slammed by some fans for posing with a gun. A photo of the One Direction star being all smiles while holding a gun was shared on social media on Thursday, September 25, prompting people to criticize him.
In the photo, which apparently was taken when he visited "Duck Dynasty" stars in Louisiana on Wednesday, the boybander can be seen standing in the middle of the group while wearing a simple white T-shirt and black pants. "Today I shot a gun at a clay disc thing and I loved it," a friend named Andy Samuels wrote.
A fan who doesn't like the star posing with gun said, "Thanks for glamourising America's gun crisis that literally kills countless numbers of innocent people." Another fan stated, "It's not funny to hold a gun, because every day thousands of people die by gunfire!"
Earlier this year, Payne was also criticized after showing his support to "Duck Dynasty" following controversy of Phil Robertson's anti-gay view. "Huge love to you/your family huge respect for your business prosperities and the family values you still all behold. big fan," he wrote to Willie Robertson. Payne then claimed media twisted his words, saying, "I just watched a show and I liked it as most people do stop sitting in my twitter and do your research #lazyjournos."
