One Direction singer Niall Horan laughs off gay rumours after Vine kiss clip
One Direction singer Niall Horan has laughed off rumours about his sexuality, after a Vine clip appeared to show him getting intimate with another man.
The six-second clip shared widely among the band’s fanbase shows two men – purported to be songwriter Julian Bunett and the Best Song Ever singer – kissing in a Las Vegas nightclub.
Horan, who was in Vegas to celebrate his 21st birthday, dismissed the rumours, writing: “all these rumours huh? you guys Crack me up”.

Meanwhile, when one fan asked Bunett “how does it feel to know half the one direction fandom thinks you and Niall were making out last night?”, he replied: “feels good”.

The songwriter later fuelled rumours be retweeting a fact that reads: “Three kisses a day can speed up and strengthen your metabolism.”
Earlier this month, One Direction singer Harry Styles showed his support for gay NFL player Michael Sam by wearing his St Louis Rams jersey – just days before Sam was cut by the team.
One Directon singer Liam Payne faced a backlash on Twitter earlier this year, after sending a message of support to the son of homophobic Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, which praises “the family values you still all behold.”
Robertson has repeatedly made anti-gay comments, questioning why gay men would prefer “a man’s anus” over a vagina, while other members of the family have made appearances at the events of religious anti-gay groups
