Niall Horan has branded online cyberbullying ‘disgusting’ in a series of tweets calling out abusive messages.
The One Direction star, who recently split with actress girlfriend Hailee Steinfeld, took to Twitter to share his views on the things people say online, which he branded ‘a real shame.’
“The way people talk to each other online is disgusting,” the Mullingar man posted on Twitter.
“There’s no way you would ever say half of the stuff you do to someone’s face. Bravery behind the buttons of a phone. It’s a real shame as half the time. you don’t know the person you are talking to.
“Would anyone agree?”
Niall also spoke about his own experiences with online interactions, and how ‘people feel like they know’ him.
“People sitting on their phones talking to people they’ve never met from the other side of the world, calling each other all sorts.
“I even see it when I come online. Because I go on stage, get seen on tv, get papped going for a coffee or whatever.
“People feel like they know you know and they just don’t. Just be nice to everyone and the world will be a much better place and social media is a good start.”
The 25-year-old recently revealed that he is working on new music – after his record-breaking debut solo album, Flicker came out last year.
