One Direction sure knows how to bring on the Twitter LOLs! After David Beckham announced that he'll be playing his final game for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS Cup next month, British journalist and television host Piers Morgan voiced his opinions about the soccer star's decision on Twitter this morning. "No serious top flight team would sign Beckham for football reasons any more -- he should retire gracefully," Piers Tweeted.
But little did Piers know, he'd insulted some One Direction soccer super-fans with his snippy comment! One Direction band members Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne quickly fired back at Piers and as the conversation heated up, the dialogue became even more hilarious with Piers suggesting that the boys should sign Beckham to their group because "he sings better than he plays now."
Harry, Louis, and Liam kept the Twitter interaction going, even dragging in former 'X Factor UK' mentor Simon Cowell to help them win the Twitter war. "Hiiii @SimonCowell can you tell @piersmorgan to leave us alone please? He's being nasty..." Harry Tweeted.
And 1D fans were quick to defend their favorite boy band as they, too, hurled comments at Piers via Twitter, hashtagging #PiersMorganIsSmelly which the 1D boys started. (Thankfully Piers took his LOL-worthy trending topic with a smile!)
In a last ditch effort to save himself, Piers tried to embarrass Harry and the guys by posting a link to an article featuring photos of 1D during their school days. "Oops," Piers Tweeted along with the link. "Oops," Liam fired back, with a photo of One Direction meeting the Queen of England!
Haven't you learned not to mess with One Direction, Piers? They'll always win!
Would you back up the 1D boys? How do you feel about Piers' comments?
