Liam Payne Sends 'Duck Dynasty' Star Love for His Family Values

Liam Payne Sends 'Duck Dynasty' Star Love for His Family Values

Liam Payne took to Twitter to show some love for Duck Dynasty‘s Willie Robertson and his “family values.”

“huge love to you/your family huge respect for your business prosperities and the family values you still all behold. big fan,” the 20-year-old One Direction singer tweeted.

Liam later added, “Being a fan of someones show and the way they still hold a family together doesnt mean i am ok with all they say.”

The stars of Duck Dynasty recently came under fire after patriarch Phil Robertson said some anti-gay remarks in an interview. He was quickly suspended from the show, but then A&E lifted the suspension before it had any effect on the series.

Duck Dynasty premiered its fifth season on Wednesday (January 15) with 8.5 million viewers tuning in, which was 28% lower than its record-setting fourth season debut in August last year.

    It’s hysterical that he would say that, since most people know that two of his bandmates are gay. Shock!!!

    @bonita: what about freedom to life, liberty and security? I’m pretty sure those anti gay remarks infringe on people who want to get married, but are gay’s rights.

    I think that people are too quick to judge. Much like he tweeted after…. being a fan of someone doesn’t mean you agree with everything they do. From what I’ve seen the way that family runs a business is incredible and they stick together through thick and thin… maybe that’s what he was referring to. He has been nothing but supportive of fans of all kinds and he seems to get the most crap.. should he have maybe been a little more weary of that tweet, maybe… but we’ve also become so judgmental that we automatically assume the worst of people.

    Yes you are, but we can have the opinion that your opinion sucks because they negativity affects thousands of people around the world that aren’t treated equally

    What a moron, and even more so for backtracking, have some ba**s to at least stand by what you believe in. Even if it means you a douche!

    My guess is that it is a hidden message to one of his bandmates, who he probably just had a bitchfight with, and then in the spur of the moment took to twitter and wrote something that he knew would hurt that persons feelings. Silly young man. You’ll regret it when you’ve cooled down.

    One more thing. There are surveys and discussions going on in England that shows that gay teens are having an alarmingly hard time in schools and such, so it makes it really unfortunate that the country’s biggest teenstar intentionally or unintentionally throws more shade their way. Come on Liam use what brains you have.

    “freedom of speech” actually means the government isn’t allowed to dictate what you can/cannot say. it doesn’t mean if you say wrong intolerant sh*t, you can’t get criticized. if he and that other bachelor moron go around saying problematic things, they deserve and will get called out on it! not that i think liam said anything offensive, he even said enjoying something doesn’t mean you agree with everything they say. and, no, gay people aren’t really sensitive these days, it’s just gay people have a voice now and are right to protest against the violence they’ve suffered and continue to suffer for just being who they are.

    Sheyenne Says:

    I agree that it’s not fair that people who are anti-gay always get bad responses when they give their opinion. But what I don’t get is how it’s okay just because he said it. If it was somebody else it wouldn’t be okay.

    Cassie Says:

    Thank you for reporting on this, JJ.
    I think the damage such words/opinions can cause is tragic.
    I think those kids are really ignorant.
    I wish they’d take the time to educate themselves.
