Every person wants to live in a fair world. That’s why Liam Payne tries to protect LGBT people from Trump’s ban. Former One Direction star Liam Payne has shared an emphatic defence of the LGBT community following Donald Trump’s trans ban. The British singer took to Instagram to post the message, which we said as for LGBT people. It comes days after President Trump said Trans troops will be barred from serving.
Payne faced accusations of homophobia while in boy band 1D. He spoke out about a supposed romance between Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles in an interview with Attitude magazine before the band split. He said: “When the [gay marriage] law changed in the US, there were loads of rainbow flags flying at our shows, but I think that was mainly because people think of the Louis and Harry thing, which is absolutely nuts and drives me insane.
Some of the band’s fans voiced their disapproval on Twitter after the remarks, with some saying they were “disappointed” with his candid comments. However, Payne hit back: “It’s funny I thought people appreciated honesty these days.” Last month Payne took to Twitter to refute claims that he is homophobic, after controversial comments at a One Direction live show in Columbus, Ohio.
Liam Payne previously praised “the family values” of the notoriously homophobic stars of reality show Duck Dynasty, after a homophobic rant from the family’s patriarch.
