Louis Tomlinson’s Twitter Feud With Journalist Escalates Following “Gay Apple Shirt” Incident

B2EPqFECYAAY6yiDon’t try and put One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson in a box. Following his bandmate Harry’s almost-sort-of revelation that gender isn’t an important factor when evaluating a partner, the U.K. newspaper The Independent published an article about Tomlinson and his perceived support for Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Because, you know, he was wearing a shirt with the apple logo on it. The author, Jen Selby, called it a “statement.”

But Louis saw it differently, and wasn’t too pleased with the article. He took it as being called gay by The Independent, though the article never speculates his sexuality, only his support for Tim Cook.

And it prompted the following Tweets from camp Tomlinson:
