One Direction Setting Record Straight On Gay Dating Rumors

One Direction doesn’t swing both ways. Just in one direction. Don’t get it twisted!

Band member Louis Tomlinson, who has a girlfriend, apparently had enough with the rumors swirling around his bromantic friendship with fellow One Directioner band mate Harry Styles after a follower tweeted, “Funny that no matter what happens they will never deny Larry.”

“Larry Stylinson” refers to the mash-up nickname for Louis and Harry that parody twitter accounts and tabloid blogs have adopted to refer to their alleged relationship. Louis however wasn’t laughing when he took to his own Twitter to blast back:
“Hows this, Larry is the biggest load of bullshit I’ve ever heard. I’m happy, why can’t you accept that.”

He then added: “Still months of reading ridiculous conspiracy theories. It’s upsetting that I have to read them daily. Thank god for the lovely people on here.”

Louis has since deleted the initial tweet, took a chill pill, and tweeted: “oh dear I’ve gone to town today haha. Lots of love to all of you amazing fans!! And now to finish on a good note :) I’ve clearly flipped on twitter today. I'm sorry to any REAL fan of ours that I've offended.”

Harry, who is rumored to be dating model Cara Delavigne, however, remained mum on the matter.

One Direction is still relatively new to super stardom and as young men, gay rumors are basically inevitable, and lashing out about them is kind of a rookie mistake.

Louis should’ve just taken a page out of the Zac Efron playbook, which means telling others you're not bothered by rumors, you see nothing wrong with being gay, and shrug them off. Oh well, next time!
