One Direction star Niall Horan has apologised for calling a group of fans a “shower of c**s” claiming that it was just “banter”.
The 'What Makes You Beautiful' star made the shocking comment as he arrived back in Ireland on Monday night (July 1) following months away touring the US with his chart topping band.
18 year-old Niall was in high spirits as he walked through Dublin Airport and joked with fans who were waiting to welcome him home. In the video, uploaded to You Tube the blonde heart-throb can clearly be heard to say: “Remember the last time I walked down here? You shower of c****.”
The user who uploaded the video, 'heyitschelsss' didn't seem offended by the comment claiming it was “banter” as well.
“We didn’t mobb him, he callled us showers of c**** as BANTER.” they claimed referring to the video.
But now Niall has admitted that using such an offensive term was unnecessary and made it clear he had not meant to be offensive.
Taking to Twitter he said: “really sorry if I caused any offence. It was just banter with fans who I think of more as mates.”
“but I understand that it's not a word I should be using at all,” he added.
Niall has been enjoying his time off since wrapping up their hugely successful tour across the pond and admitted he would be catching up on some Jeremy Kyle while he was home.
We ought to wash your mouth out Niall!
