Niall Horan
might have some trouble sleeping for a while.

The 22-year-old One Direction singer called out a fan for snapping and posting a photo while he slept on a plane. In the original caption, re-posted by Horan, the fan claimed that the singer "was sick and asked for no selfies," but still managed to take a picture after he fell asleep. "He was so friendly!" the fan gushed.

"I think this s**t is unreal," Horan clapped back on Twitter. "I mean, if you can't sleep on a plane without people taking photos of you, what can you do?"

Elsewhere in the world of One Direction news, Horan's bandmate, Liam Payne, is following in Zayn Malik's and Harry Styles' footsteps with a solo record deal of his own. Speaking with ET, the group's mentor, Simon Cowell, admitted that the news came as a bit of a shock.

"I was slightly surprised to read that Liam signed to another label," Cowell said at an America’s Got Talent live show taping. "I wasn't expecting it. But you know, that happens." (Payne signed to Capitol Records UK, while Styles and Malik remain in the Sony family.)

"The great thing about these boys – well, not all of them, but most of them – they are incredibly loyal and you don't always expect that," Cowell told reporters during a recent conference call. "Niall, Harry, Louis. [It's] amazing."
