Niall Horan Begs Directioners To Stop Throwing Things At Him, Is Shockingly Not Flattered By It

Niall Horan head tilt

Niall Horan took to Twitter last night to ask his fans to stop throwing things at him during One Direction concerts. Looks like someone doesn’t understand that the 21st century symbol for affection is to hurl an object at the person you love the most. Silly Niall, you should be flattered by it. Even if you’re in “pain” after your recent knee surgery. Gotta go read up on fandom rituals, mister. Throwing things is how it’s done.

Here’s the very polite tweet he sent out after a recent performance in Amsterdam Arena. Granted, he doesn’t ban the throwing of objects entirely, because he must understand that’s a hopeless request. He simply asked that fans “limit” those items. Which… is probably still too much to ask. Can you limit love, Niall? I don’t think so.

First you boys act like getting hit in the face by a rogue tampon is somehow insulting, and when Harry Styles got hit in the crotch by a lovingly thrown shoe you had to complain, and now you won’t even allow a few flying objects to make contact with your sensitive, recently operated-on knee? What are Directioners supposed to do, keep their belongings to themselves for the entire length of a concert? Should they strap their arms to the sides of their bodies to prevent themselves from expressing their devotion? You’re asking too much, Niall.

Next you’ll be asking everyone to please not sneak onto your property and peering through your windows at 2 in the morning. I mean honestly, it’s like you believe in celebrities having personal space and the right to not be injured by fans or something. If you can’t take getting things thrown at you like you’re Quasimodo at the Festival of Fools, then what are you even doing in this business? Speaking of that big baby, I don’t know what he was so upset about. Obviously those French people thought he was very beautiful and wanted to let him know.

        It’s so applicable to every imaginable situation.

      Love the article! Didn’t know who you were talking about, then realized it was one of the One Direction guys and I just want to mother him because that gif is so innocent. I’m 21.

      • Jill O’Rourke

        Haha, you’re not alone.

      • Olivia Wilson

        What, you’ve never heard of a 21-year-old mothering a 20-year-old? Get real.

      They’ve actually already asked people not to come onto their property. I don’t have the tweets, but Liam’s tweeted several times when there were people standing outside of his house (and I think at least one time were coming to knock on his door) and he asked them to leave.

      Honestly, this is just so disgusting. “Never want to sound like I am complaining”, what the actual fuck? No, Niall, you DO want to sound like you’re complaining, because people are being assholes and throwing stuff at you while you’re on stage performing. That is nowhere near acceptable and you should not apologize for calling people out when they are being complete idiots. I understand that he needs to be sure that he doesn’t come across as ungrateful for all the fame and the fans, but this is just ridiculous.

        Oh, shut up. If you’re brave enough, why don’t you tell this to his face instead of just simply just hiding behind the computer screen and posting stuff? Yeah, that’s what I thought. You’re a coward.
