At one point in the show, Niall Horan gave a performance but his song "Black and White" was cut short by Dustin and The Den gang.

In what could be the most freaky twist of 2020 yet, fans of the former One Direction star are calling for an apology from Dustin the Turkey and Ray D'Arcy after a sketch for RTÉ's Comic Relief charity show "disrespected" the singer. You're only getting a minute-and-a-half!

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. "I didn't realise people from Mullingar had teeth!"

If someone had told me earlier this week that - in some freakish turn of events - Niall Horan may have to issue a statement to defend Dustin the Turkey from rabid "stans". well judging how 2020 is going so far, I probably would have believed you.

"Lads.", he wrote. "I'm a lover* not a fighter".

They shared their frustration in threads on Twitter, with "Respect Niall Horan" trending.
