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."
