One Direction’s Liam Payne Thinks Even Buildings Should Know Who He Is
Liam Payne — one part of the boy band One Direction — says he and his family were treated badly by security at the Empire State Building on Tuesday, and he retaliated with a poorly-spelled tweet when the staffers didn’t know who he was.
And then he got royally pwned. By a building.
Payne tweeted in a now deleted rant: “The senior security supervisor was arrogant, unprofessional and extreamly disrespectful to my family @EmpireStateBldg #TheresAlwaysTimeForManors”
Because there’s nothing worse than “extreamly” bad “manors.”
The Empire State Building account later tweeted back at Liam, and even used his native British spelling to make sure he understood:
.@real_liam_payne bad behaviour not accepted at ESB. No, our security does not know who you are, and does not care.

Embarrassed at being told off by a New York City monument, Payne quickly rescinded his snarky, barely-legible tweet and posted an apology in its place:
Seems there was a bit of a mix up when I was at the empire state. Its all good. Sorry for confusion looking fwd to next timeeeee!

Well, good. We’re glad that’s settled.
