Niall Horan Shocker — Calls Fans ‘A Bit Too Much’

Niall Horan One Direction Fans

In a new interview, One Direction’s Niall Horan opens up about the intensity of some the group’s superfans, saying they can ‘get a bit…crazy.’ Is he being too judgmental?

It’s no secret that the success of One Direction is due, in large part, to the adoration of their fans. But it seems like someone didn’t get the memo.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, One Direction’s Niall Horan spoke about a recent stop on their tour in Australia, saying, “You can see girls getting too excited and they start crying or worse. In a lot of these countries they don’t get a lot of gigs to go to, so when they get to see their favorite artist, they take full advantage of it.” Ouch.

The 18-year-old singer went on to say, “Obviously the excitement builds up too much for some on the night and they get a bit…crazy. Sometimes I’ve seen some stuff that’s a bit too much!”

But it isn’t all criticism that Niall has to share with his fans. He concluded, “Also, sometimes they’ll queue outside a venue for ages for us in the freezing cold. Queuing tips for fans: wrap up and bring food!”

See? A little helpful advice, too.

What do you think? Is Niall out of line for calling out his fans like this? Let us know!

He didn’t say anything offensive… the writer is making it seem like he said something bad when he really didn’t. In all honesty, Niall was probably laughing and smiling while he said all this too!

I don’t get what the big deal is. They asked him the question, and he simply replied honestly in a non-affencive way.

No, Niall was certainly not out of line. He only said what the rest of the world already knows. I’m from Australia, and it’s true that big acts like One Direction are hardly ever here. So some fans do get a bit over excited. Even the fans know that it’s too much. But in the heat of the moment these things happen and Niall is completely right!

I don’t get why Niall would be out of line for telling the obvious?! I really don’t think this is a huge shocker or that Niall is trying to be mean, I think he is just being honest and stating the obvious. It doesn’t mean he dislikes his fans just that it can get out of control and tiring, which as his fans we should be more understanding to.

im from australia and we dont get people over often like he said. but some girls go too far also like he said so he’s not insulting anyone he’s just pointing out what everyone already knows
