It must be tough at times being a globally successful pop star.
Just ask poor Niall Horan who was left enraged after being dragged to the floor group by an overzealous paparazzo at LAX airport.
The One Direction lads had arrived in the City of Angels last night and were greeted by hordes of fans - alongside many a pap.
And given how popular the 1D boys are it should come as no surprise that pandemonium ensued.
I hate the paps!! Just got dragged to the floor by some idiot with a camera ! could have seen the fans aswell, but they messed it all up!— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) November 20, 2013
Clearly unhappy about being surrounded by many a prying lens, Niall got the brunt of the forceful camera men, ending up on the floor.
Taking to Twitter, Niall vented: “I hate the paps!! Just got dragged to the floor by some idiot with a camera ! could have seen the fans aswell, but they messed it all up!”

But it wasn’t only Niall who was left unimpressed by the pushy paps.
Rather than expressing their thoughts through the medium of Twitter, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik used the simple but wholly effective technique of presenting a few select fingers.
A video of the moment has since been posted on Twitter with one fan tweeting their upset over seeing their idols get pushed around.
They wrote:"The video of the boys getting mobbed by the paps breaks my whole heart. Not fair to abuse them with words so they say sonething [sic].
"The boys have left LAX. They were seriously mobbed by paparazzi, not fans.
"Zayn seriously wasnt happy with the paparazzi at LAX tonight. He was doing the finger and telling them to back away from the others. Good boy."
