Liam Payne’s Facebook page hacked and filled with pornographic images

The One Direction singer has suffered some social media woe

One Direction singer Liam Payne has had his Facebook page hacked, with the culprits posting links to pornographic images and articles.

Payne, who is currently embarking on a solo music career while One Direction are on hiatus, has a significant presence on Facebook, boasting over 10.4 million followers.

OK! magazine reports that Payne’s Facebook page began to share pornographic images that were linked to such stories as “Things that can happen to you when you don’t have sex” and “10 best positions you don’t know“. The latter post appeared to have been written by Payne himself, with the words “try it” written above the link.

Payne’s representatives have declined to discuss the hack, and the posts have now been scrubbed from his account. However, some fans and Twitter users screenshotted the posts – see a sample below.

With One Direction now officially on hiatus, each member of the boyband has now gone solo. Last week, Louis Tomlinson became the final member of One Direction to announce a solo career, with a view to releasing new music on Simon Cowell’s label Syco.

The Sun reported that “Louis is a brilliant songwriter and had not initially planned his own solo career. But he’s been back in the studio and has been working on some really amazing music. He’s played some to the powers that be at Syco, who are really excited. They think he could be a real success as a solo artist, given his proven ability to write hit records and massive fanbase as part of One Direction.”
