Liam Payne Responds to The Kooks' Frontman Dissing One Direction

Luke Pritchard of The Kooks recently dissed One Direction in a ranty series of drunken comments on Twitter--and Liam Payne is firing back back.

Bottom line: don't drink and tweet, y'all.

Luke has since deleted the messages posted on November 25, where he slammed One Direction, their fans--and his own band's fans.

Not cool.

Liam tweeted about the ranty diss sesh, writing: "Sad thing is @lukekook we are/where fans of your band, nice one man verbally attacking your own fans how very rock and roll of you ;)"

Luke kicked things off by responding to an article about 1D Day and their album release party, writing, "5 Little Things We Learned From One Direction's iHeartRadio Album Release Party...stop this malfunction. world realign please. artists dying."

A fan fired back, saying she was both a One Direction and The Kooks fan, to which he responded: "do not like what I do. i'd rather anyone who likes one direction never follow me. you literally have no idea who upset i am."

When a fan asked what he had against 1D and their fans, he said, "everything. how can you be a fan of something that has no life. i honestly feel so depressed that you are into kooks."

He later admitted he was drunk tweeting, "hahah i'm so drunk. fuck it. I'm looking at what is there, seriously!! is that what we have. please buy real music... rant in emin over."

Sure, blame it on the alcohol.
