A fairly hilarious Twitter saga unfolded over the weekend when Dustin The Turkey found himself on the wrong side of Niall Horan fans because of his RTÉ Does Comic Relief appearance on Friday.
Niall featured on The Den reunion. singing a song before Dustin cut him off to say they wanted Harry Styles before remarking that he never realised Mullingar people had teeth. The joke made its way across the Atlantic and there were a lot of fans going beserk at the slight.
Last night, the infamous bird took to Twitter to try quell the uproar and mend some bridges with the Horan's fanatical followers.
I’m a lover* not a fighter....
I 💚 @NiallOfficial
I 💚 Americans
I 💚 The Craic #BeKind

2020 has thrown a lot of curveballs our way but it's fair to say nobody predicted that there would be a saga involving an Irish puppet turkey and some pissed off American music fans. In case you missed the return of The Den on Friday you can watch it below.*
