Chart topping boyband and global superstars One Direction, has been branded as’ perverted’ and ‘freaks’ by the Westboro Baptist Church in the USA.
The church has a reputation for having a go at celebrities over the years that do not confirm to their beliefs, and now they have turned their attention to Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson from One Direction.
On a series of posts on the church’s Facebook page, 1D have been slammed and slated and accused of leading their young fans astray and into sin. They are damned for encouraging Directioners’ ‘lustful’ behaviour and reprimanded for grabbing each other’s ‘asses on stage.’
“WBC will picket this perverted pop boy band from the UK who claim to be the world’s #1 band.”
“Indeed, they are a perfect representation of this filthy world and the sin-chasing, f*g-enabling, God-hating, Christ-rejecting UK who has banned WBC from preaching within her borders.”
The church officials went on to say:
“These freaks and their fans think it’s funny for these five perverts to grab each other’s asses on stage. They glamorize sin and make a mock of God’s standards. Their one purpose is to encourage the youth of this generation to pursue every lust their evil hearts can imagine.”
One Direction are currently in the middle of the US leg of their Take Me Home tour and have so far not commented on insults, but the comments have upset many of their fans.
