One Direction’s Liam Payne took heat on Saturday after turning to Twitter to express support for “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson.

Payne indicated that he is a “big fan” and sent out “huge love” to Robertson, adding that he has “huge respect for your business prosperities and the family values you still all behold.”

That didn’t sit well with some on the Internet.

Openly gay YouTube personality Tyler Oakley — who has over one million followers — hit back, saying he was “very confused and disappointed.”

“This literally changes everything,” he added in his tweet.

If you defend someone actively supporting bigotry, homophobia, and ignorance, we're not on the same wavelength to even have a discussion.

I live for the ignorance in my replies right now. I've never seen so many tweens telling me to kill myself and to leave the fandom. Amazing.

I'm okay with losing followers over this; I'd rather give LGBT teens support than look the other way & accept bigotry to appease a fanbase.

Payne quickly issued a follow-up tweet, aiming to clarify what he meant.

Being a fan of someones show and the way they still hold a family together doesnt mean i am ok with all they say.
