Doesn’t Stephen Colbert know that you should never take the name of a One Direction member in vain? The late-night talk show host caused quite a stir when he called out Liam Payne while accepting an award at the PCAs, and now Directioners are taking to Twitter to express their outrage.
We’ve always found it difficult to pick our favorite One Direction member, but for Stephen Colbert the choice was obvious — Liam Payne! While accepting the award for Favorite Late Night Talk Host at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 8, Stephen voted Liam the “cutest” boy in the band. Unfortunately his joke did not sit well with Directioners, who know full well that there’s no picking favorites when it comes to 1D!
Stephen Colbert Mocks One Direction During PCAs: Fans Angry On Twitter
Countless 1D fans took to Twitter to give their two cents about Stephen’s PCA acceptance speech, in which he said, “Tonight the American people stand up and with one voice decide which member of One Direction is the cutest. Obviously, it’s Liam. Obviously.” Stephen showed an admittedly sexy picture of Liam as proof, but Directioners were not convinced.
Steven Colbert.. ONE SIMPLY DOES NOT SAY A MEMBER OF ONE DIRECTION IS THE CUTEST. THEY ARE ALL CUTE OKAY. That is all.

One Direction Wins Favorite Band At 2014 People’s Choice Awards
Luckily One Direction has too much to celebrate to worry about Stephen’s slight.
The group won the 2014 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Band on Jan. 8. How exciting! The boys of 1D beat out some serious competition to take home the award — they were up against such bands as Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, OneRepublic and Paramore!
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU agree with Stephen that Liam is the cutest member of 1D? If not, who do YOU think is the cutest? Let us know!
