The moment caused pandemonium amongst One Direction fans and the hashtag “#lilokiss” started to trend on Twitter. Fans started to question whether the kiss was an accident or whether it was intentional. Based on the two One Direction bandmates’ reactions after the kiss, it looks like their lips actually did touch but was probably just one of those tiny accidents that happen on stage that gets blown up in the press and social media.
Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, One Direction fans know, often joke and play-fight on stage. As a previous Inquisitr article noted, recently the fandom was in a tizzy when a video came out showing Louis and Liam apparently “fighting.” During the video, it looks like Liam shoves Louis, and then it looks like Louis starts shouting at his One Direction band mate.
Both Payne and Louis immediately stated that they were just playing around on the One Direction tour. As Yahoo Celebrity also notes, the two guys have even had water fights on stage. Earlier this month, Liam Payne soaked Louis Tomlinson with a bucket full of water in front of thousands of fans who were thoroughly entertained. It all went down during the Drag Me Down performance, and Louis Tomlinson really was dragged down by all the water he was drenched with on stage.
Louis tried to defend himself by holding his hands up, but it was all in vain. He got soaked. He tried to get a little bit of revenge by splashing some water from a water bottle on Liam. But it was clear who won this round: Liam Payne.
As the previous Inquisitr article stated, Liam seemed to be annoyed by the negative attention his play fights with Louis was getting.
