One Direction star loses it in Twitter rant

Louis Tomlinson lost his cool on Twitter last night after a report in The Independent stated he was showing solidarity to Apple’s Tim Cook who recently came out as a gay man.

The speculations came about after the One Direction star was spotted wearing a t-shirt with the older copy of the Apple logo, which is striped multicoloured. 

However, Louis has now blasted these reports, saying he is straight and fuming: “Fu**ing ridiculous I even have to tweet that sh**!”

The One Direction star laid into The Independent reporter, Jenn Selby on Twitter, writing: “@JennSelby The fact that you work for such a ‘credible’ paper and you would talk such rubbish is laughable. I am in fact straight … Google ‘original apple logo’ and you will see the one printed on my shirt that you reported on. Trying to look for a promotion?”

However, the reporter did not lie low for long and explained to Louis the message behind the article.

She also condemned Directioners for sending her death threats (as per usual):

“Hi @Louis_Tomlinson thank you for your tweet. I’m sorry you found out article in any way insulting …

At no point did we insinuate anything about your sexuality or mention your relationship, and nor would we …

We were merely speculating as to whether you’d shown your support to a brave man facing some persecution …

For his decision to come out in public recently. I’d like to remind my readers …

That being called ‘gay’ should never be insulting & that standing up for #LGBT rights is an admirable thing to do …

I’d also like to remind Directioners that calling a woman a ‘bit**’ is never OK – and neither are death threats …

And to thank those Rainbow Directioners who have tweeted it for their support. It is much appreciated.”

Louis has not yet addressed the comments on Twitter.
