Wheatus have launched a scathing attack on The Wanted for seeming to send a homophobic message to One Direction during the boybands' recent Twitter feud.

The 90s band, best known for their track 'Teenage Dirtbag' which One Direction covered recently on their 'Take Me Home' tour, have seemed to weigh in on 1D's Twitter spat with The Wanted which has divided their fans since.

One tweet in particular, sent by The Wanted member Tom Parker, alluded to the fact that his rival Louis Tomlinson may be gay while using the #itgetsbetter hastag.

“I’ll enjoy the press even more when you come clean #narnia #itgetsbetter,” Tom wrote.

Clearly disgusted by Tom's comment, Wheatus weighed in on the feud earlier today, blasting the singer for making light of a serious topic.

“Homophobia is the ugliest kind of jealousy. #evil,” the band wrote on Tuesday. “Too many young people are suffering the loneliest sadness & fear. Use of the #itgetsbetter hash tag in a hateful manner is unacceptable."

“Seriously guys don’t accept that kinda talk from ANYONE. You are beautiful & you deserve a fulfilled life JUST AS YOU ARE #itgetsbetter."

While Wheatus were furious with the comments, The Saturdays star Rochelle Humes seemed to find the whole situation rather amusing.

“Wow who'd have thought boys could be b****ier (prob not a real word) than girls. Now now ladies lol. Twitter beef does entertain me though.. Giving me life lol," Rochelle tweeted possibly in reference to the war of words.
