A source close to the situation explained:
Oh don’t you DARE lay a finger on One Direction!
The Brit boy band had to battle their way out of the airport last night after landing at LAX! They were of course met by mobs of screaming Directioners but also by some apparently hands-on papz who did more than just take pictures. They had the audacity to rough the dudes up!!!
Niall Horan sounded off on Twitter about the chaotic scene, saying:
I hate the paps!! Just got dragged to the floor by some idiot with a camera ! could have seen the fans aswell, but they messed it all up!

OMG! Niall, are you OK?!
We tracked down a video that shows all of the commotion (below) and we are BLOWN away by the footage!
In the beginning, we can hear a man screaming:
“You f*ckin’ p*ssy! You’re a little boy band bitch, that’s what you are!”
It’s unclear if this was one of the photogs who got physical with the group but it isn’t long before you hear a loyal Directioner going OFF on him, saying:
“Hey, shut the f*ck up! You don’t know him!”
Thankfully Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall all got into the car and safely sped off. But not before one of them gave a fan the compliment of a lifetime, telling her they liked her hat.
She’ll probably never take it off again now!
Ch-ch-check out some more pics of One Direction arriving in El Lay (below)!
