Liam Payne's New Track 'Both Ways' Gets Trashed on Twitter

Liam Payne's New Track 'Both Ways' Gets Trashed on Twitter

Another fan referenced controversial comments that Liam made about his former One Direction bandmate Harry Styles'eclectic clothing choices.

One Direction star Liam Payne has received flak for disrespecting bisexual women in his solo debut album "LP1", specifically in the lyrics to his number "Both Ways".

There's a good reason for the first tune being good - it's co-written by Ed Sheeran and Payne doesn't try to disguise its origins, mimicking Sheeran vocal tics and flow.

However, the fact that Styles recently debuted new solo music, which is receiving a much warmer reception than Payne's only fueled the memory of this radio interview. But the album has instantly hit bad luck over one song in particular.

If you haven't yet had the pleasure of listening to "Both Ways", here's an excerpt: "My girl, she like it both ways / She like the way it taste; Yeah, who else you wanna invite?/ Never too many hands on your body".

Sanders also wants to ban several controversial practices by carriers, including their use of data caps . A recent episode of Hasan Minhaj's Netflix series, Patriot Act , focused on this very issue.


Many followers opposed the lyrics of "Both Ways", in which Liam sings about a trio with two women, accusing the star of fetishizing bisexuality. "B--ch, I warned y'all years ago! lmao #liampayneisoverparty", he tweeted.

Immediately, LGBTQ people on Twitter took offense to the song.

Eventually, the tweets grew in volume until #LiamPayneIsOver was trending on the social media program. "I feel like my child would come out dressed in something that I just wouldn't understand", Payne said on the UK's Capital FM Big Top 40 show in 2017.

We don't know what responding to this latest wave of Twitter hate would result in, but we'll keep you updated as we find out.
