One Direction singer Niall Horan has called Irish fans a 'shower of c****' on arriving at Dublin airport. Watch his outburst below.
The star, who was approached by fans as he arrived on home soil made the statement to the female fans, swearing at the youngsters.
As he walks past fans, Horan is filmed saying: "Remember the last time I walked down here? You shower of c**ts."
However, fans claim the expression is a well-known local saying, which is used in general banter.
One Direction were this week named as having the third best selling album in America in 2012 with their debut, 'Up All Night' - behind Adele and Lionel Richie and No.1 and No.2.
Last month, Horan's bandmate Zayn Malik was accused of 'pimping Islam' by a US writer.
