Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne of the popular boy band One Direction were spotted Saturday night at Eve Nightclub after their performance at the Etihad Stadium in Australia where they are currently on a world tour for their 'On The Road Again' show. Reportedly, they got seriously drunk. At their hotel, they run into a fan who going by the handle Tyla uploaded a series of videos on Vine, one of which she captioned "JUST MET LOUIS AND LIAM DRUNK WTF." However, one of the videos seem to show the drunk 23-year-old Louis saying, "I'm gay, it's pretty unfortunate."

Back in November, Louis famously went on a Twitter rant against a reporter from the Independent who suggested he is a supporter of Apple's Tim Cook who admitted to being gay just because he was seen wearing a t-shirt with the company's old rainbow-colored apple logo. In a series of tweets, Louis told the reporter, and his Twitter followers: "The fact that you work for such a 'credible' paper and you would talk such rubbish is laughable. I am in fact straight."; "Google 'original apple logo' and you will see the one printed on my shirt that you reported on. Trying to look for a promotion?"; and, "Fucking ridiculous I even have to tweet that shit!"

Following the controversial Vine video's upload, fans who have been using the social media hashtags #ImGayItsPrettyUnfortunate and #LouisWeLoveYouNoMatterWhat have set off an apparently trending topic on Twitter. Fans who were present at the hotel when the incident was filmed have stepped forward to explain that he was actually talking to a girl who has the same birthday as him, December 24. Reportedly, according to one such fan, "Someone had said they have the same birthday as Louis, and he said 'it's pretty unfortunate'... not anything else, stop making up sh*t." Even Tyla, the fan who uploaded the video, joined in, tweeting: "I hate it how people that are in a different country are telling us what happened when I was the one that videoed it!"

Anyway, even though Louis has not yet said anything about the Vine video, says he was seen at Bondi Beach the following Sunday spending time with his girlfriend Eleanor Caldwell. He and Eleanor have been on a solid relationship for the past four years.
