One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has been slammed by former 'X Factor' winner Steve Brookstein for his supposed lack of talent
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has been slammed by Steve Brookstein.
The former 'X Factor' winner - who had a public spat with music mogul Simon Cowell after being dropped from his record label - described the 18-year-old singer as the "luckiest man in music" for landing a record deal when he can't actually sing.
Writing on his twitter account, he said: "Congratulations to Louis Tomlinson on his record deal. Luckiest man in music. have u heard his audition. There should be an enquiry over show fixing. He is shockingly terrible. It's like les dawson comedy bad.
"I've heard his YouTube. Auto tune all over it. I don't blame him. I blame Simon for putting him in the public eye. (sic)"
However, Louis' mum was quick to jump to her son's defence, calling the 42-year-old singer's comments "cruel".
She tweeted: "Hi I'm Louis's mum. My family have always liked you and bought your records. Why be so cruel? Why shame him in public? He was sad about his audition. He was incredibly nervous. Listen to his YouTube.
"He is 18 Steve! I honestly thought you were a nice bloke. Sadly for us now what we were told about you seems accurate. (sic)"
However, cheeky chappie Louis got the last laugh with what could be perceived as a sarcastic response.
He wrote on twitter: "steve your my idol ! I'm sorry @stevebrookstein if you are not a fan of mine, without you winning the 1st X Factor I may never have had my opportunity, so for that I thank you. Have a great christmas."
