Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson took to the field in the name of charity for a 2016 Soccer Aid match this weekend. One Direction fans showed up to the game to see their boys compete for bragging rights, as Louis and the England team took on Niall and the Rest Of The World.
But their bandmate Liam Payne wasn’t there. During the game, Liam sent out a tweet about watching TV with his “girl” and things went downhill from there.
The tweet opened up a torrent of angry One Direction fans who wanted to know why Liam wasn’t at the game to support his bandmates—hiatus or not. Many wanted to know if Liam was watching the game from home, and if not, what could possibly be more important than a charity soccer game featuring celebrities.
Check out more fan reactions and Liam’s original tweet below.
