Max George tweeted: "Just to clear up... I think interviews have been twisted and made into much dramatic than what they were.. We appreciate all other artists (sic)
"And all fans of any age, whether youre 1 or 90. Anyone who says or thinks different is full of s**t." [sic]
The Wanted have denied any feud between them and One Direction / WENNNathan Sykes continued the Twitter rant, saying: ""When someone takes your words and twists them its like a knife in the back #whathappenedtothegoodguys?!" [sic]
The defensive tweets come after an interview in which Nathan said they felt no rivalry with the One Direction boys.
He told People magazine: "If you look at One Direction's chart position and then look at ours, they're not really even our rivals.
"Unlike One Direction we don't have Simon [Cowell] but we don't need him either. He is too controlling for us - we like to have control of our own music."
We're glad that The Wanted have clarified the comments - we want our British boy-bands to all play nicely.
