We have reached peak 2020
If someone told me at the beginning of this year that Niall Horan may have to issue a statement in defence of Dustin The Turkey, to protect him from furious fans in the US, well, I wouldn’t have believed you.
But, welcomes to 2020, where Dustin The Turkey is fully being cancelling by furious Niall Horan fans.
To fill you in, it all began on Friday night, when Ray D’arcy, Dustin The Turkey, and Niall Horan all made appearances on RTÉ’s comic relief. In this particular segment, in typical Dustin style, Dustin The Turkey stopped Niall mid-performance to share his thoughts with the singer.
Saying that he preferred Niall’s former bandmate Harry Styles, the short clip soon resurfaced on Twitter, with hardcore Niall fans from the US less than impressed with Dustin’s behaviour.
With many threads soon emerging on the social media site, the main message fans wanted to get across was that Dustin’s actions were entirely ‘disrespectful’, with the hashtag respectniallhoran soon trending.
What they did to Niall was extremely disrespectful and rude. He didn’t have to sing for them either and interrupting him saying they wanted Harry instead is so uncalled for. Harry would not singing for your crusty asses anyways! pic.twitter.com/XIQYsdCgyu

Niall has worked so hard to make a name for himself in the industry.
People need to start appreciating him and his amazing music lot more.

The clip which was shared by RTÉ has since gone on to be viewed over 1 million times.
In defence of himself, Dustin The Turkey has had his say on the situation, letting upset fans know that there’s no beef between himself and Niall, and that he loves both Americans and having the craic.
I’m a lover* not a fighter….
*Just ask @KimKardashian

Niall himself is yet to comment on the situation, but we’re sure that when he does he’ll be on team Dustin.
