Dustin the Turkey vs Niall Horan fans. The saga continues.

American Niall Horan fans have been coming for Dustin the Turkey after he made a comment that some have dubbed disrespectful to the Irish singer.

Basically it all kicked off after RTE Does Comic Relief on Friday night when a clip of Niall singing was interrupted by Dustin, Ray D'Arcy and Zig and Zag. Cutting back to the gang in studio, they can be heard saying that it was actually Nialler's former bandmate Harry Styles they wanted... a comment that didn't go down well with the Mullingar man's US fans.

Saying that the comment was extremely "disrespectful and rude", fans have been expressing their outrage on Twitter. Naturally, this caught Dustin's attention and he's since responded in an effort to settle the "feud" once and for all. Tweeting that he's a "lover not a fighter", Dustin reiterated that he loves Niall, Americans and the craic - suggesting that the whole thing should be taken as a joke.

Admittedly not the beef (or should I say turkey hehe) we were expecting, but hey, it's 2020 and we should know to expect the unexpected by now.
