Louis Tomlinson may have a reputation for being the sassiest member of One Direction, but now he's throwing shade at the comments The Voice UK judge Rita Ora made about X Factor.

During a recent interview, she said that her show is better than any other talent competition out there.

"We're definitely more entertaining as individuals! And the singers are better. And to answer bluntly, it's about music. It's a good show, a great formula, and there's no illusions," she said.

Since Rita reportedly turned down a spot on the X Factor judging panel for her current gig, it definitely seems like her comments are directed towards the competition that made 1D famous.

And he definitely took it personally! The singer tweeted, "Is bad mouthing The X Factor the only way The Voice knows how to promo their show? #everyyear."

We definitely understand why Louis is defensive of the show that gave him his big break, even if her comment may not have been a direct attack. But we'll have to wait to see how she responds before we figure out how this feud is going to turn out. Hopefully there won't be too much drama!
