James Arthur Says He "Respects" One Direction After Sparking Fans' Ire On Twitter

20 September 2013, 11:52

The 'Impossible' singer has been forced to clarify his comments that the band are a "marketing product".

James Arthur has clarified his recent comments about One Direction saying he "respects the boys massively", after being attacked by the band's fans on Twitter.

The 'Impossible' singer found himself in a war of words with one fan yesterday (19th September) when they described him as "s**t" and compared him to the X Factor boy band.

"One Direction don't sell records they are a marketing product. They sell t-shirts and dolls you moron," James then replied, before being flooded with messages from One Direction fans.

"Haha twitter rant attacking one direction…? Really?? The papers hate me! I was argued with some know-it-all, I did not attack 1D," James later clarified, before adding. "I like the 1D boys a lot they have been very supportive of me, I merely said they are a huge marketing super power… Which they are…"

The UK singer-songwriter, who won the last series of The X Factor UK, then explained that he "respects the boys massively" and was merely "defending" himself in response to the fan comments.

James Arthur releases new single 'You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You' on 20th October, and launches his debut album 'James Arthur' on 4th November.
