One Direction Fans RAGE Over Andy Cohen's "Twink" Comment!

Oh jeeeeze.

It seems some of One Direction's SUPER enthusiastic fans did NOT like it when Bravo head Andy Cohen affectionately referred to the members of 1D as "Twinks."

Earlier this week, 1D performed a few of their hits on the Today show, garnering the largest concert crowd the morning series had EVER seen…

And after their musical spectacle, it seems Mr. Cohen ran into the cheeky chums in the Today show green room and was SO impressed by what he saw, that he immediately tweeted:

Andy also referred to the boys as "Twinks" during his appearance on the Today show that same morning.

"Twink" is a contentious word and is sometimes seen as a derogatory definition referring to a certain "type" of homosexual… thus Andy experienced crazy Twitter backlash concerning his comment.

Of course, always the gentleman, Andy semi sorta apologized by tweeting:

HA!

Yes, those boys are the cutest! And are even STEAMIER with their shirts off, so no wonder Andy was at a loss for the appropriate wordage!

Ah well, we're glad it's all been sorted now and that 1D fans can get back to obsessing over their fantasy boy crushes uninterrupted.

    If anyone else had called them a twink you'd be pissed off. I guess twink, like f*g is the gay community's N word. It's ok for them to use it but anyone else will get their bum handed to them.

    but since andy cohen is gay it is 100% ok to call straight ppl names yet not the other way around. makes total since, ass

    Maybe I'm being daft here, but I always thought that while twink is a word that comes from and is used by the gay community, it didn't refer specifically to gay guys. I thought it was just a generic term for lads who are young and pretty.

    Twink is not a degoratory within the gay community, a twink is a young cute guy.

    Hypocrite! My god I can only imagine that pathetic whiny tantrum Perez would have thrown if a heterosexual used that term. Perez is such a hypocrite. Always was, and clearly always will be.

    Andy hates everyone especially women. Most gay men have suffered terrible abuse at the hands of women at some time in there life. Twink is a very ugly word. I don't blame them except that they look and act just like gay twinks.

    according to Wikipedia. haha

    "Twink" is a gay slang term describing a young or young-looking gay man with a slender, ectomorph build, little or no body hair, and no facial hair. Someone older than 25 with similar looks and build is said to be "twinkish." In some societies, the term chick or chicken is preferred.[6] The related term twinkle-toes, which implies that a man is effeminate, tends to be used in a derogatory manner. The terms can be complimentary or pejorative.

    People are way too sensitive these days. I never heard of the gay term before but heck, I am in my 60's and not up to speed on a lot of stuff these days.

    How is Twink offensive? We describe a homosexual person as "gay" a twink would be a young looking gay kid..
