"It’s absolutely disgusting that you get mistreated because of the colour of your skin," he says
Niall Horan has tweeted his disgust at Donald Trump branding those protesting against the killing of George Floyd as "thugs."
"THUGS?? These people are protesting against the fact that one of YOUR animalistic white policemen kneeled on George’s windpipe and forced him to stop breathing and killed him??" he messaged echoing the sentiments of millions. "THUGS???? Are you listening to yourself?
"Racism has been rampant for hundreds of years, it’s just that in this century people have camera phones to video it," he continues. "It’s absolutely disgusting that you get mistreated because of the colour of your skin. You would think that those that are there to protect us, would protect."
Proving that in this instance pop and politics do mix, there's been an overwhelmingly positive response to Niall's comments, which make us love him even more!
