Leeds engage in weird Twitter beef with ex-One Direction's Niall Horan

Friday, October 26, 2018

Leeds United have found themselves embroiled in an unlikely Twitter spat with former One Direction star Niall Horan.

The whole thing started when Niall posted a tweet about his favourite team Derby County, who beat West Bromwich Albion 4-1 on Wednesday night.

Then Irish radio producer Thomas Crosse weighed in and encouraged Niall to send Leeds a few good luck vibes ahead of their midweek Championship clash.

Horan wasn't in the mood, though, and his response was far from flattering to the Elland Road club.

And someone behind Leeds' Twitter account wasted no time in hitting back, slapping back at Horan with a jibe about his post-1D output.

With One Direction on a break, the Irishman has released one solo album and a handful of singles, none of which have topped the UK charts.

The trolling sparked hours of jibes from both Leeds and One Direction fans.
