Liam Payne has hit back at claims that he is "homophobic".

Earlier today he took to Twitter to say: "I am in no way shape of form homophobic that's a ridiculous thing to say and I'm not here to offend people so take it as you will."

The One Direction member said his job is "just to make people smile".


According to JustJared, Liam told a crowd at a 1D gig: "This is my favorite song off the last album, and it is about trying to find that number one woman of your life, which none of you can relate to, ’cause most of you are girls. Except for the boys in here, you know what I’m talking about."

Liam started off his Twitter monologue by saying: "lol think some people take things to literal these days not gunna comment on it anymore you guys know what I meant it was meant in general."

Then continued with: "So annoying trying your hardest to make people happy in a show and you think about all the notes u tried to hit higher or a little sweeter...and all some people want to concentrate on was a throw away statement about a song that I love."

More of Liam's tweets today.

"Lol this is so insane the more I read I'm like wtf have u ever said something in the wrong way I'm sure every person here has lol," posted Liam before apologising and saying: "I'm sorry to those I offended really I am but there's no need for some of the things I'm being called.

"I'm just here to make people smile I kinda consider it my job role." It is not the first time the 21-year-old has spoken out to insist he is not homophobic."

According to reports this isn't the first time the singer has been accused of being homophobic.

Last year, after some fake photos were posted online, he said: "I'm 100% not homophobic. But I'm also 100% not gay so when somebody says I am I'm gunna say I'm not which does not make me a homophobe."
