They'll use whatever it takes. If it was a woman they'd be calling her a whore and a slut, and saying disgusting things about the supposed state of her vagina (as happened to Selena Gomez when she started seeing Beiber), if it was a black person who offended Liam the 'n' word would be employed. Their need to white knight for One Direction takes precedence over anything else. It's very pathetic.
And disturbing - you want to defend your fav group but to un-PC insult anyone who doesn't share your rose tinted view of them is beyond the pale. Some needs to teach these girls respect.
